An interesting fact about me that some of you may not know is that I received a bachelor's degree in 3 years! I graduated from West Texas A&M University on May 12, 2007 with a degree in Fine Arts! When I graduated from high school I didn't have any college credits. But I took summer school every summer and even took classes during winter and spring breaks. It was a lot of hard work, but I was determined to graduate early. I was inspired by my brother, who also finished in 3 years! It was great because I was able to go to cosmetology school sooner and begin my career as a hairstylist. That's always been where my passion is. But I am very proud to have a degree because education is super important to me.
I graduated with Honors, too, and was on the Dean's List each semester!
The Fine Arts and Humanities banner is on the right. It was a really fun program to be apart of.
I'll never forget that the CEO of AT&T was our guest speaker at the ceremony. He held up a tiny device and said "The only thing you will remember about my speech is that I showed you the very first iPhone." And sure enough .. that's all I remember.. But how cool is that?! It wasn't even for sale yet.
At WTAMU the mascot is a buffalo.
My family surprised me with lots of balloons and decorations that day!
I also got this amazing cookie cake. It says "Now you can slow down, Anna" .. That's because I took so many classes back to back to back to back.
The thing I wanted most for graduation was EverQuest 2. I briefly played the original EverQuest 1, but during school I didn't have much time to play games. So this was on the top of my wish list. I was so stoked to get it! I've been playing it ever since :)
Since I didn't blog 6 years ago, I figured now is as good as time as any to make a post about it! I can't believe it's been 6 years already. I have accomplished so much. I am extremely proud to show off something I worked so hard for!
