It is OFFICIAL I now have my BS in Biology. I finished my last class on Thursday the 3rd of May, and then walked for graduation on the 4th. I didn't know if I had actually gotten a good enough grade in my class, but I sure hoped I did for a few reasons.
1- I really wanted to be done
2- I didn't want to pay any more money for school
3- I didn't want to find out I had sat through the graduation ceremonies for nothing.
I finally got my grades the following Monday and found out I had gotten a good enough grade WAHOO. That feeling was AWESOME!!
I went to both Commencement and Convocation.
Commencement was interesting. They had Ed Catmull, co-founder of Pixar, speak. He had some great things to say a few of them were: don't be afraid to fail, when there are no disagreements there is no innovation, and chance has a lot to do with success (I see God as he sees chance). I don't really remember a whole lot from the program. I had a hard time hearing. We ended getting there a lot later then we were expecting so instead of sitting with the graduates I sat with my parents, Troy, and the kids.
The Convocation made me NEVER want to go to a science one again. If I could go back and do it over I would have found out when the fine arts college was doing theirs and gone to theirs. I'm sure it was at least a little entertaining. I guess chemists, biologist, and mathematicians are entertained in a rather boring way. It was dreadful, and felt bad for my supports who had to sit through it especially my two kids.
