It's Official


Last week I received a letter in the mail telling me that I was 3 credits deficient from graduating. I was baffled, I had gone over my credit hours a million times. So I called the registrar and she told me that yes, I was short 3 credits. I was almost in tears thinking of how I would have to take one measly class this summer semester just so I could graduate. I think that the lady could hear the desperation in my voice as I told her this was impossible. She was kind enough to humor me and she hand counted my credits. Low and behold, I had enough. I even had one extra. The wonderful lady did a manual override and sent me my diploma. So I received my diploma in the mail today with President Monson's signature on it (I think it's a stamp) conferring me, Alisha, with a Bachelor of Arts in Art. Kind of sounds funny, but a Bachelor of Science in Art would sound just as silly.

I still haven't received my piece of paper...they said it would take up to three months to get out to me? That is a really long time. Congrats Alisha. I can't wait to see you on Friday. Love you!

So I have been meaning to ask you for a few months now if I can add a link to your blog. I will send you an invite to mine cause we made it private a few months ago. Your baby is adorable and I will admit to randomly blog stalking you every now and again. Send me an email at kmharrah@gmail.com so I have your email address and I will send you back an invite.

This made me scared that this might happen to me. I better check my credits, and count them myself. What a mistake. It sounds like you handled that scare pretty well. I bet that was a great feeling to see that diploma. Congrats!!
