My forgetfulness never ceases to amaze me

December 12th, 2009 at 06:25 pm

Its been a hectic semester and with graduation ONE WEEK away, I thought I had everything done.

No, despite losing my Dad, going to Hawaii twice, working, dealing with family life and whatever else... I managed to register for graduation, apply to take the CPA exam... but I forgot ONE thing

To register for commencement

I had even bought my academic regalia.

I may be able to still walk, but I'm doubtful I'd be able to get the four tickets I need for my family to attend. They could still view it from an auxillary room though.

I now wonder if its worth the hassle. My poor husband in a room off to the side managing the four kids during a 2 hour ceremony in a busy room.

I always told myself that since I missed my bachelor's degree graduation thanks to the Navy, that I would attend my master's degree... and thanks to my forgetfulness, I may not even be able to.

I emailed the college to see, but if not... I guess I can just take a picture of myself in the regalia w/the kids so the $100 I spent on it doesn't COMPLETELY go to waste. I really only wanted to go because of them since they made their fair share of sacrifices along the way in this endeavor.

Still yet, I'm bummed. I thought I had everything taken care of, I didn't realize I also had to register for commencement (since I didn't go to my bachelor's degree graduation either).
