Graduation Party

grad group

Last Saturday, May 23 was my surprise graduation party, held at the Richard Nixon Library.  This was the big one that I’ve been anticipating for….well…..a long time.  I’m finially finished with my Master’s degree, so a party at a historic library was the perfect way to celebrate!

Pictured above are most of my family.  There are actually many more who were not able to attend….mostly due to distance.  I have a lot of family still in Germany and also the midwest, but those who attended are my closest family and friends.  I must say, the food was phenomenal.  My mom, who planned the whole party, had it catered by Veggie Grill.  The food was SO good, that even the meat eaters went for the Veggie Grill items over the “omni platter” that the library provided.  I’m just glad I grabbed a bunch of food the first time around, because there was little left by the time I made it back for seconds.

So this was a double fun experience for me because it was not only a party to celebrate a big milestone, but also an opportunity to share the great veg options with members of my family who usually scoff at my choice of foods.

Overall, it was a super fun day!

  4. Eric, first of all, congratulations on getting your degree! Second of all, I’m trying to do some research on chat reference in corporate library settings. I saw that you worked at Boeing and that Boeing used chat. Would you please email me if you’re up for discussing? Thanks!
