But on the other hand- I'm done with college!! I have a Bachelor of Science degree! I'm officially an alumni of a major university! I don't have to study anymore! I don't have to drive to Provo anymore! I don't ever have to experience finals week again! This is the sweet part of the bitter-sweet. Oh, how sweet it is.
Graduation was perfect! I went to the commencement speech that Elder Oaks spoke at on Thursday and then the rest of the night was spent at my grandma and grandpa Hymas' house. Friday morning I walked at my college's convocation which was so rewarding after all my hard work. Bennett was ridiculously thoughtful as usual and planned the rest of the day. We had a delicious lunch at Biaggi's with all of my family and Bennett's family. Later that night, my mom and dad had everyone over for games and Bennett made homemade ice cream (my favorite) for me. It was such a great couple of days full of celebrations with all of my favorite people. I am so grateful for all of the support I had from Bennett, my family and in-laws.
