My cousin Ollie just called me after crossing the stage at Temple University where he graduated with honors, Magna Cum Laude *chills* and wanted to make sure that I knew 1) he shouted ME out and 2) that he saved me a program as a gift. Man. I’m such a sap… I just sat here and cried for like 10 minutes. I’m so unbelievably proud of him, I have no words. We are now 2 of the first American-born lineage of our family to have gone to and completed college. And he knocked it out of the park. And he says he owes ME. Man… If he only knew how much I owe him.
I feel so much better now. I don’t even feel sick anymore.
