I Did It!

It never seemed like it was going to ever happen, but it finally did. I actually completed my masters. Yay!!!

I graduated from Texas Southern University's Tavis Smiley School of Communication with a Masters of Arts degree in Communications on December 15, 2007.

YIPEE!!

I didn't go to my graduation because my baby sister graduated the same day, at the same hour, from a university in East Texas. So, since this was her first degree achieved, I decided to join my family in Nacogdoches, Texas to celebrate Kimberly's achievement.

As I was sitting in Kim's graduation, I was sitting there, thinking about how proud I was that ten years after graduating from undergrad, I had achieved another academic honor. What a blessing!

I'm not a person that gets caught up in the "look at what I did" song and dance. But I have to admit, when I sit down and think about the accomplishments that I have been able to achieve despite being totally blind, I realize that I have something to be glad about. So, right now, I am sitting here in my office, thinking about how blessed I am to be me.

Usually, my life gets on my nerves... But today, I am thankful for the life that I do have.

Thank you God for the life you have given me. Thank you for the tools, insight, and gifts that you have placed inside of me. You're so awesome!

To all of those that have been rooting for me for the last three years, thanks so much. Guess what... I need some more rooting. I'm going to start working on a second masters in January. This time, I'm going to get a masters in counseling. So, get behind me and push real hard. I need all the support I can get.

With love and peace,

Angie

Hey Lovebabz! I love it that you come and offer your love. Thanks for the congrats.

As soon as I get back home, where I can use the internet freely, I'll be coming to your blog to read and leave comments. I think we'll be back in the house at the 1st of Feb. Say a prayer.

Congrats Angie!!! I am so proud of you. You are truly an inspiration.

You're going to start on the next degree in January?! Wow. I would need to take a breather and smell the roses a bit. I'll be on the sidelines cheering you on.
