I was going through my senior yearbook from High School and came across a quote that one of my classmates entered into her senior profile. She attributes it to Dr. Seuss, and I have become enamored with it. I think it pretty much sums up what we all attempt to do on Blogger. There are so many people out there (who shall remain nameless) who attempt to control or edit or overly criticize what is written in a blog. This quote sums up what I feel/believe in regard to blogs, and really life in general:
"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
There is really no impetus for this post, just something I have begun to think about after reading this awesome quote. I will be myself and share how I feel with you in all my posts. I encourage you all to do the same with your posts. I understand that everyone has his or her own opinion about things, but let's keep this quote in mind when we read anything. No specific criticisms; again just something I have had a while to think about lately.
I'm sure you are all waiting for a juicier post that I promised, but some patience is in order here. Don't worry; I haven't forgotten you!

Some of you out there have received "official" invitations in the mail; however, since I have limited resources and could not send graduation invitations to all my happy blog buddies, I wanted to post this electronically scanned copy here.
So, you're all invited!
Of course I don't expect that you will all fly in from your various corners of the world to attend said occasion. Also I don't want anyone to feel pressured/obliged to send cards, gifts, etc. While such things are much appreciated, I just wanted to post this on-line to make sure no one felt "left out." So, feel included!
I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank every one of my readers for the last four years that I have been blogging on here. I wasn't really sure how to do the whole blog thing, but from very helpful and critical comments, I have been able to relate to my audience while preserving myself and my own interests in my posts. Some of you have been around for the entire four years, while some of you may have only started reading my blog. No matter what the case may be, thank you for your kind comments, and especially for just taking the time to read what I have to say. You really don't know how much I appreciate that.
At any rate, the happy occasion of my graduation from Xavier will take place on May 16th. Until that time, I have five final exams to take this week, and a senior thesis to write about my research. Next week is a completely laid-back week, since there will be nothing for me to do but relax! And, well, of course, reflect on my last four years here.
Thank you all again for your readership and your feedback. I will continue to blog for many years to come, and I hope you will keep coming back for more.
