Aloha Friday 5/11

Welcome to Aloha Friday! It's a weekly blog event that started at An Island Life where I ask a simple question, answer it, then invite you to answer it also! 

I'm graduating tomorrow! I am so excited to finally have a bachelor's degree. I started college in 2005, but only attended a year before I joined the Air Force. Most of the credits I put towards my degree were earned while I was in, but it still took me 3 semesters to complete it. 

It wasn't easy, but it wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be either. I found out I was pregnant with Mr. C only a month after I had finished my admission paperwork and been accepted at UH. I was really worried about how I was going to pull off school while pregnant, and then school with two babies under 2 years old. By far the hardest part was finding good daycare, something I hadn't expected. 

It's finally over though :) Next semester I'll (hopefully) start graduate school. University of St. Mary's in San Antonio has an online program in International Relations. It's a trimester program so it will only take 2 years to finish. I can't wait to get started! 

This week's question: What was the last graduation you attended? 

Thanks for playing and be sure to link up below!

    Aloha Friday: Skype-in on Mother's Day

  19. Oh shoot, I can't play along 'cause we're hosting our own Aloha Friday Hop with, another local girl site. But maybe, if you don't mind, I could come back at the end of the day when I'm freed up to add another post and answer the questions on my site. I love this idea.
