It's almost surreal how calm this day has been. TJ & I have been so busy the past couple of weeks/ months with school, work, and family. I had to work last night and I didn't get off until after 10 so TJ decided that we were just going to rest today. Although its been nice, its also been kinda boring. We almost feel as though we were doing something wrong because we weren't really doing anything at all. In any case, it was nice to just be with each other. Couples need that every once in a while.

In other news... SBVC finally had a commencement ceremony on wednesday and I participated in it. I'm in the far left right in front of the people with the gray gowns. Can you see me. I got there late and ran in line because everyone was already walking out... It was lots of fun. My family and best friends were there so you can only imagine how excited I was to have everyone in the same room. I haven't really been trying to broadcast the fact that I was graduating because I thought.... Why make a big deal about it, it's only an Associates Degree. TJ didn't like that way of thinking and made it a point to help me understand that it was an accomplishment. It has taken me six years to do it but I am really excited that I got it. I am the first in my generation to get a degree higher than a high school diploma and being fourth to the youngest grandchild out of 89, I can honestly say that I am proud of myself. I love my husband for continuing to make me feel like my small accomplishments have helped change the world. I laugh at him sometimes but deep down inside I really do feel special. I'm very grateful because he's a Salanoa and my Salanoa sisters know that sentimentality is a lot to ask for from one of the Salanoa Well, that's all for today guys. To anyone reading this, be happy, stay beautiful, and keep smilin.
