Woo Hoo! (Picture)

After I moved here, for months I was fretting about my degree from Ohio State. I’m talking about the actual paper, the “diploma” if you will. I couldn’t find it. I was so scared I’d left it in the house somehow and it got thrown out or something.

I was beating myself up wondering why in the fresh hell wouldn’t the degree been one of the FIRST things I moved here? I had my high school diploma, and they were always displayed together, so where was my college degree?

I know Ohio State has to have record of my going there and graduating from there, and I could possibly get a copy of the actual degree/diploma with the case and all. But it still worried me that I might have been so careless with it. After all, I was the first in my family to ever get a college degree. I had teachers tell me I’d never make it through college. It’s a huge deal to me.

Well, earlier this week, I was making Adam suffer look through some of my old scrapbooks with me. When I went into the little pantry thingy to get another book, lo and behold, there was a red book-looking thing! My heart leapt. Did I dare hope? Could it be?

I pulled it out, and opened it, and YES! Hooray! My DEGREE!!

Now it’s displayed in my bookcase.

ETA 12/30:

Here it is!

My Degree!

Bulleted List

  • Still in pain. Just took my cocktail of four ibuprofen and one Psuedovent 400. Just waiting for those pain pills to kick in so I can lie down and relax.
  • Not much of an appetite lately.
  • Aidan turns FIVE tomorrow! I got him a toy robot (which is TOTALLY available in stores despite what the Web site says), a Spongebob Squarepants DVD, and a Spider-Man yo-yo. I also got myself a small desktop Christmas tree for 62 cents.
  • Enjoying the new computer. Still learning my way around Windows Vista, but it’s been good so far. It has some really nifty little features.
  • Aidan goes to my mom’s tomorrow and will stay for two weeks. He’s excited.
  • I’ve been rereading The Princess Diaries.
  • Still waiting for the ibuprofen to start working. It’s possible that it may not work at all tonight, though. That’s happened to me quite a few times. if that is the case, I will be popping a Darvocet to get some relief. I really hope the Psuedovent starts working soon. I know it takes a few days and I just started them Thursday evening. I am just ready to be well and not hurting anymore.
  • Did all the dishes today! Now I have to take out loads of trash and clean Little Lucy’s litter box. Man, that little cat can stink up the apartment when she does #2. I’ll probably do those Monday night or sometime Tuesday.
  • I have Tuesday off from work. Totally looking forward to lazing around all day. Maybe I’ll start to tackle Pride and Prejudice.
  • A bit sad that the holidays are coming to an end. Ordinary time can be so depressing.

That’s all for now.
