Cue the Pomp & Circumstance

grad-hatI wanted to take just a moment to share with you about something pretty big happening in my life this week. I am graduating from Liberty University with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology degree: emphasis in addiction & recovery. At the age of 31, this is my first degree, but it has certainly been a long time coming.
