May was plenty hectic. But in a good way!

  • I had the research symposium in which I talked about Caleb Williams and rhetoric
  • I had my last set of finals and grades
  • I graduated college with an English degree
  • I got a new camera
  • I went to the lake for Memorial Day weekend
  • Went to a used book sale
  • Did my first wine and painting event, I made a moon reflecting in the water
