Those of you following me here may or may not know that I've graduated! As of May 6th 2012 you may call me Denver Lancaster, Doctor of Physical Therapy. Licensure exam scheduled for July 31st.
I thought about taking this time to reflect on 33 months of balls-out academic struggle and tom foolery. Instead, I think I might just close the book on this one, and show off some fun pictures.
There was a party after graduation at Red Rocks! It didn't hit me until I was leaving... I spent more than a full time job's worth of hours every single week for 33 months with all of my classmates. Got to know families, significant others. Made a lot of friends. Wasn't thinking, right at that moment, that I will never be in the same place with all of them again. Bitter-sweet. :) Maybe it still hasn't hit me. It was a good send off! Parents got to meet friends, faculty. I ate myself sick.
Carmen came, as well, and we posed for some photos. Red Rocks is an amazing place. I will have to make a point of going down there more frequently after I start working and making money.
I'd like to send out a great big generic thank you to everyone who helped me through this - especially family, and good friends (new and old), the counseling center, and modern pharmaceuticals. Thank you.
