Commencement and some good news!
May 24, 2010 § 1 Comment
Well, I am now officially a graduate of Georgetown University. Commencement was held on Saturday inside McDonough Arena after rain threatened our original plans to have the ceremony on the lawn. It was a bittersweet moment; I’d be leaving my 2011 classmates a year early, but it was good to know that the past three have been probably the most rewarding in my life.
Add to all the graduation hoopla an acceptance into Cornell Law School on Friday afternoon, and there was a lot of celebrating to be had this weekend. Our family went down to a Georgetown favorite, Farmers and Fishers on the waterfront, for a great lunch, where everything is locally sourced – rich Maryland crab dip and crispy calamari, luxurious and generously filled crab ravioli, tacos! – and spent the rest of the afternoon wandering around M and Wisconsin one last time.
By the end of the day, I was so exhausted from all the standing and sitting and waiting that I passed out very early at a friend’s house in VA and the next day we drove our crowded van back to Jersey for the summer.
Congratulations Becky! Can’t believe you’re out in the real world, even if you’re going back to school. Also, Katie is so tall!
