Beginning of a New Chapter

I've been a student for the past 16 years of my life & I still can't believe that this chapter of my life is officially over!

It's the end of...

... Late night cram sessions

... Long weekends of group projects

... Last minute homework assignments at 5 am

... Ever rising tuition and book fees

And ... hours & hours of tedious lectures and note-taking!

Today I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Business-Accountancy from Sac State University & so far it's been a bitter-sweet experience for me. I'm sooo happy & proud of myself for finally finishing and graduating with honors, but I know I'll miss those carefree days of being a student and having the flexibility to make my own schedule ... real world here I come!

All of my closest family came to the ceremony to celebrate my accomplishment & I seriously felt like I was some kind of celebrity with all the paparazzi shots that my family was trying to take xexe but I'm happy I got tons of great shots!

Graduation 6
{My bestie Marina & I ... I'm sooo going to miss our late night calls and non-stop texting xexe ... She was my biggest support and college would have be so dull without her}

{My hubby & I ... He's soo happy I'm done! ... poor guy had to put up with so much while I was in school}

Graduation 2
{My mommy & Daddy ... they're so proud to have such a smart daughter ;)}

Graduation 3
{My Grammy & Gpa ... so glad that they came to support me}

Graduation 4

Graduation 10
{All of my sexy girls!}

Graduation 9
{My baby sisters and I}

After the ceremony we all went out to one our favorite Asian restaurants to celebrate ... usually it's so hard to get a good group picture with my family, but somehow it all worked out this time!

Graduation 7

I'm so blessed to have such a wonderful and caring family to support me through both the good and bad in my life ... I don't know what I would do without them & I'm just thankful that I have them all!
