Little Happenings w. 9 (10, 11 & 12)

3 1/2 years of going to grad school part-time are finally coming to an end ya’ll! Today, I graduate with my Master’s in Arts Management and I couldn’t be more relieved/excited to be DONE.

It’s been 4 weeks since my last post and in that time, life has been happening in a positive trajectory towards my graduation ceremony which is taking place today at 3pm.

Cherry on top is that Charles is also walking and graduating with his Master’s degree today too! His ceremony is at 10am. Hashtag black and yellow graduation! Ay Ay Ay Ay! (booty poppin on a handstand)

With that said, here’s a quick recap of a few of my favorite little happenings via my iPhone pics from these past couple of weeks. :)


^^ Presented my capstone on dance at the forefront of creative placemaking and got really good feedback on it from my professors.


^^ Celebrated cinco de mayo with yummy grub & drank.


^^ A super belated 30th birthday present to myself = went to Ikea and got/ built a new bed frame for me and Charles to sleep on.


^^ Caught up with my girls and celebrated my girlfriend’s daughter’s 1st birthday.


^^ The sweetest surprise from my boss lady yesterday in lieu of my graduation ceremony today.

Annnnnnnd that’s that. T-minus 2 hours till I graduate! :)

    • Thanks Disa! My mom sent me a box of “more professional” clothes for my 30th birthday to celebrate my getting a new job and I’m pretty much wearing what she sent :) If it weren’t for her or Charles’s guidance, I’d be a mess in the personal style department cuz I despise shopping for myself lol.
