So Jules and I move out to NC 5 years ago for me to go to pharmacy school. It's hard to believe that it's been 5 years but it has. A few weeks ago I finally graduated from Campbell. For my 5 years of hard work all I got was 2 large pieces of paper and this funny looking hat.
At least Cambree liked the hat.
It sure feels good to be done with school though. OK almost done with school. I still have to pass my licensure exams. They shouldn't be too hard though. They just cover everything I have learned over the last 4 years.
Graduation day was nice. My Ma flew out along with my sister Millie. They tried to surprise me with my sister, but my Ma gave me a few hints and I was pretty certain she was coming. It was fun to see her even if I wasn't surprised. Jules' sister Mindy came over with her family to cheer me on and were very disappointed when they didn't get to really cheer when my name was called.
So the green thing around my neck is a hood for my Doctoral degree or Pharm.D. So I guess I got more than some papers and a funny hat. It also comes with the title "Dr." so if you feel so inclined you may now call me Doctor Beege. The yellow hood that Julie is holding is for my masters degree. That's right I finished two degrees in 5 years. What a haul that was.
People ask me how I made it through pharmacy school with a wife and two kids. Well here is the answer...
No, Seriously, I wouldn't have made it without her. In fact I am not sure I would have had enough ambition to get into school without her. I love my wife and I thank her for her support through out my last 6 years of school.
