...Science of Electrical and Computer Engineering this afternoon.

Thank you for all the kind words and encouragement for the past 16 months. It's greatly appreciated.

And now, I'm going to go celebrate...

Guys...

To say Commencement was emotional is an understatement.

There's a footbridge that connects the east side of the campus to the west, and we lined up on the east side. As a Masters candidate, I was one of the first ones to cross the bridge, and when I saw how many people had come for Commencement, it was pretty mind-blowing.

There was a brief moment prior to me getting my diploma when I was looking around the campus, the people, the historic buildings and newer buildings, and my AXGF popped into my head.

And I smiled...

...and said to myself, F**K HER. For I bounced back -- all the way back -- to where I should be professionally and academically after she was out of my life.

I guess the message I'm trying to convey is even in the darkest of hours, don't give up hope and don't allow a sick person to bring you down. Getting rid of a sick person is addition by subtraction. And living well is the best revenge.

Always,
ZoSo

LOL,

I will be graduating on June 26 and I hope I can look back and have the same emotions as you do about my ex..

I love what you said " getting rid of a sick person is addition by subtraction and living well is the best revenge"

Thanks for your Inspiration
