Quick Life Update

Hi all! It's been some time since I posted on my blog so I thought I'd give you a quick update on what's been going on. The first thing that really sapped all my time was my final final's week. You read that right! My very last finals week as an undergrad! I had several papers, 3 days of Japanese exams, and a killer biology exam. I did pretty well, coming out of the semester with an A and two B's. After that, it was on to graduation!

I graduated with a Bachelor's of Health Science in Health Sciences with minors in Psychology and Anthropology, an Honors Certificate, and a Mutli-Cultural certificate.
Because I took enough Honors classes and kept my GPA high enough, I took part in the Honors Convocation Ceremony. As you can see, there was a lot of people. It was for everyone who earned the Honors Certificate, Department Honors, University Honors, and Latin Honors. The convocation speaker was great! He started out as lawyer and refocused to be a chocolatier; pretty cool! They also had the president of the alumni association speak, which sucked, because the alumni association has been doing some things to students that was not cool. So to have her stand up and give what was pretty much an advertisement was insulting. Then we received our Honors medals! They pronounced my middle name wrong and all I could hear was my mom yelling from the balcony "You pronounce it ___!"
The next day was my actual graduation ceremony!

I got to sit with several of my friends and, four hours later, it was over. This time, they pronounced my middle name right, but my last name wrong. It was a pretty exhausting weekend, but there was no time to rest! The next week, we worked the first half of the week and then went down to our parent's house for the end of the week. We did a little relaxing, but spent most of our time getting ready for our Study abroad trip to Japan (more on that later)! The next week was spent training the new guy at work, which was very, very tiring!
Then, on May 30th, we flew out for Japan! I'm actually sitting in a hostel in Tokyo as I type this, but you'll have to wait for my next blog post for more! I hope you all are having a good summer too! Do you have any travel plans? If not, what stay-at-home plans do you have?
