Swing Your Tassle Right To Left.

Four years ago, I moved to the small quiet college town of Greenville, Illinois. 
I didn't really plan for an 8-hour away seemingly 'uncomfortable' small town with nothing but a college and a prison to become my home.  But.  It happened.  Greenville is my home sweet home. 

I woke up and went to Baccalaureate to hear the lovely Lisa Amundson speak her brilliant words.  You can find them here [http://amundsons.blogspot.com/2012/05/god-is-good-even-in-october.html].  You should (re)read it.  Anyways.  Then I ate lunch and beautified and lined up for commencement.  Then I listened to another wonderful speech by McClure where I learned (among other things) that the only thing we know is that we know nothing.  Then I watched my graduating class of 2012 walk across the stage and shake the president's hand.  Then proceeded to the chaos on Scott Field to snap some last photos.  I think I got pretty much everybody that was there that I loved.  Said some last words and temporary goodbyes.  Then it was packing time forever and roomie time and bed.  So.  That was Sunday. 

Some might say that Monday was the 'first day of my future'.  I might have to disagree.  Because it was Memorial Day and I was in the car until 10pm.  But whether it began my 'real future' or not, it was the day I left my home sweet home. 

I would really love to be Em's roommate again someday.  I'm so grateful for what our friendship has evolved to be.  The laughs, the jokes, the Wifeswap, the One Tree Hill, the animals, the Moto runs, the dance moves, the Lifetime commericals, the game nights... so much more, all go down in my book as part of the best year ever.  Man, Ens.  I love your heart. 

So.  I guess that's my 2 cents for graduation day.  I graduated.  So that's that.  So now begins my future.  *sigh*
Miss you, GC.  Hope to see you real soon. 

P.S.  Aren't these outfits the most flattering?
