Getting ready for the ceremony!
OMG! The long awaited day had finally arrived!! My graduation day! The ceremony would start at 2:00, but we had to get there at 12:45. I looked for the grad students spot and waited for instructions. Latech stadium was packed as this was the Spring graduation, the biggest of the year. The instructions weren't that many, basically just how we needed to walk and how we would get the hood and diploma. That hour of wait was a little long, but it gave me the chance to remember the good things about Louisiana Tech. All the bitter feelings I had the previous days were quickly going away. I remembered the good friends I met, all the support from my advisor, the success, the classes, the trips... the people who loved me and especially, all the things that turned me into the man I am now.
Receiving the diploma!
Then, I felt ready!

2:00 PM finally arrived and we walked to the court. The ceremony was emotive but long, and doctoral students are the last to receive the degree. I won't deny I was in some sort of shock when my name was called. I did not hear anything else when I walked the stage. I received the hood and the diploma, shaked the University's president head and hugged my advisor. It was done, that was it! I had finally got what I came here to get. I took the official pictures and walked back to my seat.

After that, of course my friends greeted me and we took some pictures. It was sad that I had to say goodbye to some of them... God knows when we will meet again. That's it Louisiana Tech! I am finally a graduate!
