This weekend has been such a bittersweet time for me. Friday was my physical therapy class's hooding ceremony, and the first time that I've seen many of my classmates since December. Saturday morning was the official School of Allied Health graduation ceremony, followed by a KU Alumni Association luncheon (I had a strong urge to wear purple & start doing the wabash, but I refrained). Saturday evening was my class's graduation party and was a great opportunity to see many more of these incredible people before we all scatter to various places for work. My class suggested superlatives for different people, and here is what was listed for me: "Most likely to be organized and on top of assignments, hence the slogan 'What Would Natasha Do?'" I laughed pretty hard, even though I'd heard about the phrase before from another friend & classmate. I guess it's a compliment?
I'll try to post some pictures from the weekend soon, too. My mind still has a difficult time fathoming that 3 years ago I started this long, arduous process and didn't think the end would ever come. Now, I look back and see how much I've grown as a person and how much I've learned as a professional in this time frame. And this is just the beginning! I will miss my classmates and instructors - it really was a group effort to get to this point.
