Graduating & Leaving Seattle
I've officially turned in my last ever assignment of my undergrad career, so I can finally publish this post and say, "I'm done!" I've graduated from Seattle University with a BS in psychology two terms early!
To celebrate, Emily told me we'd be going to happy hour, and brought me back to her house for a surprise party instead. To be honest, I wasn't surprised; my friends are amazing at so many things, but keeping secrets is not one of them.
The party was "Hannah" themed: they served champagne (my favorite alcohol), pizza rolls (my favorite food) and Oreos (my favorite snack). They also all wrote "open when" cards and collected them for me to take with me after graduating. There were even some from my mom and some friends who don't live in Seattle!
I felt SO loved and honored. I'm very proud of myself for graduating from college two terms early and graduating from my intensive therapy program. It means so much to me that my friends are also proud of me and celebrated me like this.
Of course Claire made a beautiful "congratulations Hannah" sign for us to take pictures in front of. At least 60% of the reason I throw parties is for the photo opps.
I'm so damn grateful for all Emily has done to support me through these last three years, and I'm so grateful and impressed that she threw me this party!
Of course I had to take some pictures to show off my outfit: I bought this dress especially for the occasion. How amazing are these boots? I spent $50 on them (the most I've ever spent on anything wearable) and they're totally worth it.
