Sorry I have not posted in a few days! I’ve still been struggling to get over bronchitis and job search at the same time. FUN STUFF. I have been debating about whether to travel back up to good old Norfolk, VA for my “graduation ceremony.” My school mailed me my degree so the thought of walking across a stage and not receiving anything doesn’t really sound too enticing.
But then I remember my grandfather who has been waiting for this day his entire life. My dad was out of the picture before I was even born. My mom and him were married for 3 months and then split up. Fun times. Anyway, somewhere in there I was created. My father signed off of his parental rights and gave away the next 18 years of my life. My grandfather and grandmother stepped up to help my mother raise me. If it had not been for them, I can honestly say I have no idea where I would be or even if I would still be here at all.
So on Dec 19th, I am flying up to Norfolk, VA to graduate from my college on the 20th. My grandmother, grandfather, aunt, and two cousins will be there to witness it.
And though I hate walking across ANY stages much less getting in front of people, I know one day I will look back and be so thankful I did that for them.
