I recently finished my Master's Degree. I have been working pretty hard on my degree for the past three years, while at the same time holding down a full-time job. Upon graduation, I didn't really expect to celebrate too much - my family lives far away and I didn't really see the point of throwing myself a party; I was just happy to be done.
Well, my friends and co-workers decided otherwise. Five cakes and several gift cards later, I am so touched by the kindness of my friends who went out of their way to celebrate my achievement. They decided that my graduation was worth celebrating, and celebrate they did. I feel very lucky to have friends who share my success with me.
