Post Graduation AkA the Art of Saying Thank You

After a week of Birthdays, Graduations, Graduation, Birthdays I am back in Indy and starting my 4th month of service as a VISTA.

I have a lot to be thankful for, all the family that attended my graduation, the congratulations I received, the education I ‘officially obtained’, and the opportunity to continue to learn everyday as VISTA.

I'm really bad at writing thank you notes that don’t sound generic, boxed, and plain. This is probably because I ‘luv’ cliques.

There really is an art to writing the perfect thank you, and working in development I feel like I write an awful lot of thank you’s so I really hope that I’m improving in some way. I just sent one out to one of the sponsors for the Bill of Rights Celebration; it included pictures of the event and everything. Ooo doesn’t that sound glamorous.

All my grad thank you’s are going out in the mail tomorrow and I truly appreciate everyone who’s supported me through my 3.5 years of college as well as everyone who listens to my experiences in Indianapolis. I wouldn’t be here without you!

I love you Annie. Through you, I've learned the meaning of my life's journeys. I never wanted to be one of those parents that lived vicariously through their children, but in the end, that's exactly what parents do, whether they wish to acknowledge it or not. You make me so proud. Thank YOU for being you.
