On the Eve of the Eve of My Master’s Graduation

And there is it is. Two years ago I showed up in Boston, now in two days I will be graduating! I have passed all my classes with flying colors and was honored at a reception last week. Tomorrow is another reception (where I am being honored with another award!)

So why am I not happy?

Well. “Prince Player” and I have barely spoken. “Scientist” and I are over on account of I told him I’m leaving Boston, and he did not come say goodbye.

Imagine, me sitting with my hair and makeup all done, still have a billion things left to say to him- and he didn’t come see me.

It was like the “Prince Player” situation all over again. How could this have happened to me TWICE in the last month? That is a record for Shaz. And it’s sa



d because I really liked “Scientist”. I should have known better than to open up my heart when it was already broken.

On top of that, I have cramps and a cold. I was watching my favorite show “This is Us”Β last night, and Randall said “When it rains, it feels like it’s pouring”.Β 

And then my brother who was supposed to fly in tonight told me he chose a later flight because he got caught up with more work and so I won’t see him until tomorrow 😦

And that is how the eve of the eve of my Master’s graduation is going.

xoxo. S.

  1. Whoa, man. Take a step back. Yeah, the love life isn’t great. But your brother will still be coming, cramps are temporary, and for those not there for you, it’s their loss. You’re graduating in 2 days! Do you hear that? Let me say it again: YOU’RE GRADUATING IN 2 DAYS! You should be elated, not down about a couple of guys. Yes, I’ve read along this entire time, so I get it. But you kicked ass, and are a talented and educated young woman. That’s a powerful thing. Now, be proud. Know that you have many more adventures yet to come with the opposite sex, and don’t get bogged down too much by them now. And go kick some more ass! 😊😊

    • Wow- I needed to hear this πŸ™‚ Thank you so much. And yes, out of all my readers- you are the one that has kept up with every single one of my posts! So yes you do know me so well and I appreciate you being there to comfort me. I was even commending myself last week after I got my award of how proud I am of myself. In undergrad when I won an award upon graduation, I put it to the side- not impressed with myself. So, baby steps. Perhaps when my brother and the rest of my family gets here, I’ll be happier πŸ™‚

  2. I agree with sonofabeach. CELEBRATE! You are awesome in so many more ways than you allow yourself to realize! And, hey, This Is Us is a quality show. But if memory serves, it’s not exactly feel-good TV. I mean, I’m not gonna tell you what to watch in your free time. I just think my advice would be to watch something that’s not likely to make you feel sadder. Watch something that’ll make you think, “Prince who?” or, “What’s science?”

    Congratulations on your graduation! We’ve never met, we’re not related, so it might be weird for me to say this… but I’m proud of you. You’ve accomplished a great deal in your young life. Please, promise me that you will take time to celebrate that fact. Don’t let the actions (or inaction) of others dictate how you feel about yourself and all that you’ve become. I’m really not a hugger, but if I was there, I’d totally give you a hug!

    Keep being awesome! I can’t wait to see where the next chapter of your life takes you!

    • Awww Aaron. Thank you so much! I know, you are so right. I keep reminding myself I’m awesome but these boys sometimes make me forget!
      Hahaha yea This is Us is super sad but I’m almost done with it so that means I get to move onto a new show this summer!! But hey it comes back in Fall soooo πŸ˜„

      Thank you for the hug πŸ™‚ This is really a proud moment for me. And I WILL CELEBRATE! I’m so happy to have readers like you in my life that remind me πŸ™‚

  3. No. You will not give in to any of this wallowing or any of these negative thoughts. No! Do you know how awesome you are? Think back to that girl who first commented on my blog post about missing school. Who were you then? Now go look in a mirror. Who are you now? That’s right. You’re an absolute superstar who put her head down and trudged through the mud and is coming out the other side graduating with a Master’s degree. Nothing and no one will take this moment away from you. You hear me? YOU HEAR ME, LITTLE BLOG SISTER? This isn’t their story. It’s your story. And you’ve come too far to have a plot twist on the final page. Enjoy your day, you deserve it. I’m proud of you and will be ugly crying from afar.

    • Wow Paul, am super sorry for the late reply- thinks have been insane. Reading your comment that day made me feel so much better and I did carry on with my activities without wallowing πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for your kind words!!!

      • You’re back!!! Ahhhh!! Welcome back Shaz! WordPress has been too quiet without you. I see you have some new posts, I’ll have to get to them a bit later. But ahhh you’re back, this is great!

  4. Congratulations!!!!!!! I’m sending all my love and positive vibes for you πŸ™‚ keep smiling and stay strong as you always good. The best is yet to come! So be present, and ENJOY!!!!
