7:30 - LGO with some of my favorite girls from the program. we eat and laugh. we can't believe we are done. we talk about what we are going to do with our lives back. Rox is going to take drum lessons. i'm going to do more yoga. in 8 weeks Amanda will have a baby. Sarah will have an income.

not one of us can stop smiling.

we. are. done.

9:30 - home. kiss easy. check grades. relax. sleep. dream.

At 2:30 today I learned that I passed.
and another sweet moment was added to my life.
