The Honors Ceremony

So tonight was the Honors Ceremony for graduation. The "big news" that was talked about in the comments section last night was that there was a rumor that I was going to get an award. I did in fact get an award for excellence in research for the research I did that I presented at the National Rehabilitation Counseling Symposium in Albuquerque last year. The research was entitled "Extent of Rehabilitation Values in News Articles of the Hurricane Katrina Crisis." Basically, I found that there were absolutely no rehab values and the media played it very neutral when they could've been more of an advocate for the public. So it was nice to have my research recognized with a plaque and some applause. I was just upset that my partner that I did the research with wasn't recognized as well, but they said they could only give the award to one person. So yay for me! Here's a picture of me and Megan at the banquet afterwards. The best award of all is that she's here with me for the next few days :):

A well deserved award; it's nice to be recognized for the effort you put into your work. I'm happy for your getaway to Mexico, and it's a good idea to leave the laptop at home, in my opinion. Best to enjoy the new atmosphere! Have safe traveling mercies on your trip, and LOTS of joy.

Congratulations on the award, and try not to be too upset about your partner not being included in the award. Sometimes life is unfair, but you still deserve the award.

Have a fun - but safe trip. Time to celebrate.

Thanks booklogged!

Thanks Bellezza, Yeah, I thought it best to leave the laptop at home, otherwise, I'd forget I was in Mexico and would be playing in blogland all day :p

Thanks Dark Orpheus! Trying to remind myself of that :)
