Yesterday was a big pay day. I graduated from Utah State! I started with the big commencement that started at 9:30. I met on the Quad at 8:30 to assemble for our 'commmemorative walk on the quad'. We started to walk at 9am from the Quad to the Spectrum. Once everyone was seated we had our speech by Senator Bob Bennett. He gave a great talk and it was short and sweet. The Valedictorian then addressed us and it was a girl I went to high school with! I thought it was pretty funny. She did a great job.

After that my parents, Zack, and I went to lunch at one of my favorite spots in Logan, Old Grist Mill! While we were there, Zack's parents Linda and Evan joined us. We filled them in on the first commencement and then headed over to the Kent Concert Hall for my College's graduation. I am in the College of Agricultur and proud of it!

I thought my college graduation was a lot of fun! The speakers were great, and we even had a quote from Kung Fu Panda! When it was over, we had some refreshments of cake and of course Aggie Ice Cream! It we delicious and the perfect way to end the day. When we went outside, the rain had finally stopped for a bit and we got some great pictures.

I still feel like it didn't happen! I am sure come this fall when I don't go back to school as a student it will hit me. I'm going to miss it, and it was a great 5 years. I'll always be an Aggie in my heart!

My FAVORITE Professor at Utah State and the reason I graduated. Me and Julie Wheeler.
