I have some really big news to share with all of you!! I received my diploma in the mail!! Weee! For all you new readers, I graduated from Towson University in Baltimore Maryland in January of this year. I majored in Business Administration with a Marketing concentration. It feels great to hold my diploma in my hands... It's as if all those years of work materialize and you are holding the end result.

One VERY important surprise that I would like to point out is the following:
April 07 (9)

I made Summa Cum Laude!!!!! Wwwwwwweeeee!!!!! Yiiipppiiieeee!! (*Me jumping of joy). When I started my studies, I was really aiming to be a Magnum Cum Laude just like two of my brothers achieved. But in the last two years, I decided that I wanted to be even more ambitious so I studied even harder to become a Summa Cum Laude. For those of you who don't know, Summa Cum Laude means that I am in the top 2% of my graduating class. It's the highest honor you can get!

The funny thing is that when I checked my grades online after my graduation ceremony, it said that I was only a Magnum Cum Laude. Needless to say, I was very very very disappointed. So you can imagine my surprise and joy when I saw my diploma and read the words Summa Cum Laude! Don't worry, I already checked if this was a typo on my diploma... but nope, It's legit! I'm soooo happy!

  7. First of all CONGRATS!!! From all the pictures when you were at school I had a feeling that you're college wasn't too far from NYC, the northeast all looks so similar, Towson is an amazing school which makes your accomplishment even more amazing!

    Also, I love both of these items and I can't wait to see you remix those pieces :)
