Officially a Graduate

My diploma just came in the mail. I always hated it when people talked about going through school just to get a piece of paper. Thankfully, the last five years were about much more than a little paper diploma. Here are some highlights... five years, five lists.

5 Things I Survived Undergrad Without (as in zero... yes, it is possible)
All-nighters
Facebook
Coffee
Student Loans
Wireless Internet on my laptop

4 Reasons God Kept Me Home for Undergrad (always easier to see in hindsight)
I learned a lot by being more involved in my local church after high school
Eighteen years was not enough time to appreciate the blessings of family
After all those years of praying for a brother, it was too early to leave
Commuting saves loads of money... and keeps home-cookin'

3 Courses I Didn't Think I'd Survive (each of which ended up becoming a favorite)
Intro to Ordinary Differential Equations
Spanish Composition
Thermodynamics

2 Spiritual Lessons I Learned (among many)
Apart from the grace of God, I can do nothing
Learning a lesson once does not mean that I will not need to learn it again

1 Truth That Makes Me Want to Laugh And Cry (and just thank God)
"Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand." (Proverbs 19:21)

I made it two years before I caved on that front, so you've got me beat there.
