Yesterday was one of the happiest days of my life. Yesterday was my long awaited graduation of college and the end of a big era of my growing up state. At the current age of 25 years, it does feel like something big just ended and it wasn't an easy one. Because I wasn't the brightest bulb out there, I had my issues: I didn't graduate from high school with the needed percentage that allows me to enter the higher education levels and that worried our family. Luckily since I was excellent in supplementary exams (CEPA), I managed to enter. Then there was that time in 2011 when I failed a term and had to do it again and I went to a severe depressing point knowing I wasted a year of life for nothing where I had no reason to be happy about it. Not to mention I wasn't employed at the time and that putted even more pressure on me since it wasn't manly for me to sit around doing nothing while wasting my life for no vein. If wasn't smart enough I could've killed myself back then! But I didn't do because as I said, I was smart and knew that killing myself will only make things worse. Luckily, I was able to pull myself up and went on to do my best to insure that wouldn't happen again, and I did it. Yesterday, it paid off. I was out there, along with others who worked their hardest to reach even better results than I did, and we all got what we deserved. And back at home, I was the star of a party! But do you know what made me really happy? My dear Mom was able to attend the ceremony. Cause you see, Mom went though a Varicose veins surgery earlier this week and she told me she wouldn't be to come because her leg's condition won't allow her to sit normally for too long and that me upset to know she wouldn't be able to see it. But... in a heartwarming moment, she came, and that cheered me a million times. My educational years were rough, I shed blood, sweat and tears, went through several ordeals, but it all ended in a happy ending with a high note.
