graduation

Posted by onceupon on May 8, 2010, at 9:10:15

I attended my grad school graduation ceremony yesterday :)

After months and months of deliberating and agonizing over whether to ask my therapist if she would attend (since she's been kind of instrumental in helping see me through at least half of the arduous process), I kind of chickened out and indirectly asked her in an email. To my great surprise, she said she'd come. After I was hooded on stage, I snuck out of the auditorium and found her before I had to meet up with my family.

It was a little odd to see her outside of her office - it was the first time that's happened. But it was nice too. She gave me a hug and congratulated me and I smiled throughout the rest of the evening. Just thought I'd share :)

That's fabulous, Once! It's always special when our Ts agree to be part of our lives outside of the office.

And CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!

Thanks, everyone! It was a pretty incredible day, the entirety of which still hasn't entirely sunk in for me. I saw my therapist tonight for our regular session, and we discussed the ceremony briefly. I wanted to ask her what prompted her to agree to come, but I didn't get around to it. Maybe next week.
