It’s Official… 19 Years in the Making…

Published June 2, 2009 - 1 Comment

I stopped at the Registrar’s office this morning, and said to the girl “I believe that you have a piece of paper with my name on it…”

As she started to look through the pile of diplomas, I heard her say “Hmm.. that’s odd”   Uh oh.    Then she asked me “Did you check to make sure your name was on the graduation list?”

Oh, this was not going well.

“Um no, I did not.”

She seemed surprised.  The Registrar’s office number had been going nuts with people wanting to know if they had graduated.  Well apparently I have a little more patience than most people.  19 years of waiting will do that to you.

It didn’t take her too long to find it.  “Stephen Mark?”  Yup!  That’s me.  She set it on the counter in front of me.

And there is was…  in all its Latin glory. I couldn’t understand a single word of what it said, but I understood its significance all too well.

I was done.  Finally.

Bachelor of Business Administration.
