My law degree came in today. Unexpectedly, on a day where my skin is peeling, a homeless man’s urine got on the bottom of my sweats, my allergies are running haywire and my throat is on fire.

But, there it was.

So. I sat it on top of my undergrad degree and just stared.

Despite being in this storm and confusion right now, I did what many didn’t dare to do. What many failed to do. And it hurt at times. And I cried at times. And I wanted to quit at times, but.

Those two pieces of paper tell the world that I made it. I was hurt BUT GOD healed me. I cried BUT GOD dried my tears. I wanted to quit BUT GOD steadied my pace.

And I made it.
And I’ll make it through this, too.
