Graduating as a Hilltopper!!!

This past weekend, I became a MASTER. No, no, no. Its nothing weird or anything! I walked across a platform, shook the president of the University's hand, and was acknowledged as becoming a candidate for a Masters Degree in History. So basically, I am a Master of History. I was also able to graduate with my best friend, mentor, and sister. Yes, they are all the same person! Graduation night was pretty amazing. I received a complete surprise by someone who attended my commencement and was able to have a great time with my family who attended.

Now looking back, I think I might write about some of the awesome events that occurred at Western. I had my ups and downs at the university but I will say it helped me grow as a person!

Lets just see what the world and life has to provide.
