you're invited!

i would like everyone to make a note, there are 7 days left until i, amy, graduate! yes it's true, i am so excited (even though it's not official until i finish my two summer classes). the "best" part about it, i get to be in the graduating ceremonies. if you don't remember, or never had one, or you didn't go, let me remind you... everyone who is "walking" shows up and they (the people in charge) put you in a line, usually aphabetically. then the whole line proceeds into the large auditorium, and walks down the isle so parents and the such can snap a couple pictures that are so small it wouldn't matter who the picture was of. anyway, this takes about 4 hours or so? i'm not sure, but i am still deciding if i will go. the difference between high school graduation and college, for college you must do this twice! yes twice, once on thursday night (the processional) and once for your specific college area. the social sciences (that's me) is having a ceremony at 8:00 in the morning! all to say thanks, we apprieciated having you in our class, and oh by the way, here's an empty folder, your diploma will be mailed in about 3 months! so all that to say, i am excited (if i pass) but i don't really want to go through the ceremonies. but i must appease the family (grandparents) so i'll live. to make this post even funnier, i have included a picture of myself at my high school graduation, 2002. go ahead, you can laugh, i did. anyway, if you would like to see me look a lot like that picture, you are welcome to come to my graduation (those who live here) and cheer or sleep, whichever. call me for details! oh yeah the part of graduation that is fun...
i am having an open house. because my house is half packed, we will be having it at my parent's house. you know the one, and if you don't, call me. the open house will be next friday from 6-8. i am sending out postcards, but in case you don't get one, you're invited. oh yeah, one more thing. notice i have an honor cord in the picture, yeah, not this time. but, at least i am graduating!
have a blessed day, i'll see you soon.
