Graduation Day!

Since January I've been studying to be a docent at Chicago's Architecture Foundation.
{We know, Molly, it's almost all you ever talk about...}

Well, on Saturday I finally graduated.

Graduation looks a little bit different for this class. No caps and gowns. Instead, I had to give a tour for a very experienced, very seasoned, very helpful docent. It was her responsibility to make sure that I have what it takes to lead tours and represent the organization well.

Reflecting on the Bean

I woke up with a nervous tummy. This was the second certification tour that I've had to give for this class and I was much more nervous this time than I was last time.

But I'm happy to report that despite all the nerves I passed! I'm official. I've joined the ranks of the 400+ talented, dedicated Chicago Architecture Docents. I could not be more proud.

To celebrate I took a walk around the city (and treated myself to a little something sweet). It was a beautiful afternoon and I couldn't help but feel incredibly thankful for Chicago and the opportunities it's providing.

My celebration treat! (It's long gone & was as delicious as it is beautiful.) I'm officially certified for another architecture tour. Yippee.

It's strange to think that the hard work is over. It's strange not to have homework that I should be doing. I can't believe how quickly the time flew by! But, now it's time to enjoy the hard work and serve as a CAF docent. Now it's time to stop being graded and start giving tours.

Yippee! When are you coming on one of my tours?

Are there any graduations happening in your life right now?
