My First Blog as a College Graduate!

Hi Bloggy Friends,

It's been a long, tedious road, but I can finally call myself a college graduate. I snatched my diploma last Thursday at a ceremony for students graduating from the School of Communications and Theater at Temple University. Going back to college was one of the most rewarding decisions I've ever made. I learned so much, made many new friends and racked up a few thousand memories to last me the rest of my days. What an experience. I feel tremendously proud and accomplished.

Thankfully, my parents and Alan were there to share the momentous occasion with me. My mom drove up from Kentucky on Wednesday night, followed by my dad and brother on Thursday morning. The graduation ceremony was meaningful, but my favorite part of the week was spending time with my family. We got our munch on in a few restaurants, took an afternoon trip to Manayunk and chilled at home playing word games and picking on one another as usual. It was heartwarming.

Now that I'm finished with college, the time has come for me to focus on what's next. For now, I'll be freelancing for Philadelphia City Paper, but I'll start looking for stabler opportunities when we return from our two-week excursion to Europe. If you're interested, I'll be updating my blog, Facebook and Twitter with photos and videos of the trip. I hope you'll share this experience with me just as you've shared so many others. Many of you (Bill, Rick, Casey) have been here since I began school in San Francisco. I hope you know what a source of motivation you've been for me to keep pushing on. You're the best.

Have a great night. I'll chat with you very soon.

Yours Truly,
