Two weeks ago I went ahead and walked for the first time. I never walked in Austin years ago. At the time I was moving to Vegas and life was exciting. I didn't feel like I had missed anything but I had missed something and so this time around it was nice to finish it with a little pomp and circumstance.
The best part was being with my kids that day. They all were very proud of me. Hopefully one day they will remember this day and know that education is something worth valuing in life. If they don't remember hopefully in next few years I will be walking again for my MFA in Dramatic Writing and will really be done with school (well maybe). We had a small party at Dion's Pizza with close friends and it was just a joyful night. Oh and my dear sweet mother finally got to see me walk. She was the first in the whole Puerto Rican Community to get a degree and my first generation for college as well. Each of them taught me the importance of never stopping when it comes to learning. I was happy I finally gave them a photo op, even if it was 10 yrs late ;)
