Graduation 2016

Graduation is a night I will always remember. I started the night by getting into my mom's car at 5:30pm. We drove through loads of traffic and when we finally got there I got little butterflies in my stomach because of the thought that this was actually happening. I also had some bizarre fear of my counselor telling me last minute I wouldn't graduate.

As we pulled into the parking spot I saw a lot of my class getting into their caps and gowns. When my sister and I got out of the car she immediately helped me put on my gown a few seconds later her eyes started to tear because of how happy and excited she was for me. This happens to be one of my favorite moments.

My mom had reminded me to smile to matter what. She really didn't have to- I was so overjoyed to be graduating. I walked into the ceremony smiling and really the smile never left my face. Walking across the stage with millions of eyes watching and my family shouting my name was a great feeling. I waved my diploma in the air and smiled up at my family.

My mother over here was just as happy as I was to see me graduating.

The next day, which was the 9th, I got into the car with my grandma, aunt, sister, and mom thinking we were heading to a Chinese restaurant to celebrate little did I know my mom had planned a graduation party for me. The picture above is one of my favorite photos. My two lovely friends which my mom brought to my party helped me get through high school.

For dinner my mom and my family. I knew nothing about this cooked a typical El Salvadorian turkey and made rice. The food was wonderful.

So last week was a pretty great week. I am happy to say I am not sleeping on the floor anymore and am looking forward to getting some good nights rest. This has little to do with graduation. I hope that when I look back I will remember what graduation was like. 

Much love,
