It's my case you didn't know! This one is isn't all that particularly grandiose but is instead a typical Friday where I had some other stuff that needed to get done first before I could truly relax and enjoy the day.

Last night I had an impromptu venting session with a very dear friend. To say that I am thankful for her is a big understatement and I so appreciated her lending a very sweet listening ear. In addition to a little emotional detoxing, I also enjoyed a shandy which is now my new favorite drink. I drank a little more than I had planned ("don't let me drink more than one drink" I said) but it was definitely needed!

Tomorrow I have an old friend coming into town. We have a packet pickup for the Big House Big Heart run on Sunday but I plan to show her around Ann Arbor a little bit. I always love hitting up the farmer's market so this will be an excellent excuse to go plus we might swing through Zingerman's as well. I am praying the weather holds up for the weekend festivities though.

My Facebook was inundated with messages today! It was so sweet and although I know it is the easiest thing in the world to post on someone's wall "Happy Birthday," it doesn't take away the fact that people noticed and decided to say a quick hello. I also got a few text messages and one phone call so I say that is a pretty decent day. I still have presents to open!

Yesterday was a fun snack day at work. In addition to the million sweet treats and appetizers, the office also bought a cake for all of the student workers and graduate assistants that are graduating. There is a lot of us! It was tasty, too!
Now that I officially finished my graduate portfolio, the only hurdle between me and my degree is a portfolio interview that happens next Friday. This is where we are presented with a series of questions about our comprehension of issues and theories relating to student affairs and also our professional goals and development. I swear, most of the papers I had to review for my portfolio I couldn't even remember writing. Thank goodness I saved them all. The next few weekends are going to be pretty busy but at least there isn't any homework to procrastinate on!
