My Shining Moment

Growing up my family gave me a hard time about how I was the princess. Being the youngest girl of the four I think I demanded a little more attention. This preconceived notion has been adopted by my husband who thinks I tend to be a little demanding of his attention. (I mean seriously people, where do you get these ideas?) As I have grown older, I can honestly say a lot of attention is not all it is cracked up to be. I feel sheepish and embarassed at times. Enter: My graduation.
I was adamant about attending my graduation. Remember how I wanted to wear the Harry Potter gown? More than anything I feel like this was one of my biggest accomplishments next to child birth and a church mission. Why wouldn't I want to celebrate that? The real question is why didn't anyone else in the College of Fine Arts want to celebrate their accomplishments? I was the ONLY masters graduate at my graduation on Saturday. Sure there were only 5 or so names on the program, but i was the only one who showed.  I  got recognized all by myself. I felt like it was a bit too much attention amongst all the BA grads, but Joe and my family joked that it was my princess moment.

I love that our "Princess Kwafrin" is now "Master Katherine!" I have such admiration for you wrapped in threads of jealousy. Not only are you the most beautiful graduate I've seen, but your cap is proportionate to your lovely face. When I graduated with a Master's degree, I was so bloated from being prego that my hat looked more like a yarmulke than a graduation cap . . .
