measure of my love for @brimattia

she's graduating college today and i am in attendance and very proud of her!!!
  1. our story begins with a commitment to wearing the same thing i wore to my own graduation last year (minus the cap and gown obvi)
    look how sassy and not internally panicking i look! (this was just trying on my regalia not day of so the panic was yet to come)
  2. it is important to note the shoes i am wearing.
    they're about to become v relevant to this list.
  3. i just looked to see if i complained about these shoes at my graduation but i did not
    they were An Issue
  4. and today i put them on again.
    also @brimattia your head does not look like an egg i promise
  5. literal words i said to @elav while walking to @brimattia's apartment: "well we won't have to do much walking, right?"
    WRONG. VERY WRONG.
  6. we then proceed to take a forced half hour march to the hotel where we are having fancy graduation brunch.
    i try to be good humored as i slowly lose feeling in my feet while also being in pain and in charge of the GPS. also not caffeinated at all at this point.
  7. get to brunch, table does not have tablecloth so taking shoes off is dangerously visible.
    there was also an incident involving splenda packets.
  8. there is then heated discussion about the breakfast buffet which will include more being upright and shoes being attached to my feet.
    i got the buffet & it was pretty great tbh. worth continued foot pain.
  9. brunch is completed and we walk to the graduation location
    i can no longer feel my feet and am vaguely swaying.
  10. @elav tries to give me @brimattia's flowers and graduation teddy bear. i need a hand free in case i go down.
  11. BUT NOW WE'RE SITTING AND I'M SO EXCITED TO SEE @brimattia GRADUATE
    and also because i am sitting but mostly because i'm so proud and prepared to scream and cry.
  12. I LOVE YOU @brimattia AND I'M SO PROUD OF YOU!!!
  13. UPDATE: MY PINKIE TOENAIL IS GONE AND MY FEET ARE SHREDDED AND I HAVE BLISTERS BUT BRI IS A COLLEGE GRAD!
