Meet Regina and Al. Their friendship and respect for one another all started at a fundraiser before a Phillies baseball game in 2019. “I watched Regina give a beautiful speech at the event about her recently diagnosed son, Shane,” recalled Al. “I thought to myself, ‘My friends at Cure SMA need to meet this amazing mom and get her involved.’”
So, after literal years of school, I’m weeks away from graduating with my M.A. I’m so relieved and excited to be done, but also bummed that it ended up being during quarantine. I’m not all that social, to begin with, but I was looking forward to celebrating!
Since I’m stuck at home for who knows how long with my boomer parents, I thought I’d crowdsource and see if you guys have any ideas for social distance celebrating. I technically won’t be done for a few weeks, but I was an overachiever and worked ahead, and now I pretty much have nothing to do for the next little while (not that I’m complaining). Any ideas?
Brianna, what a bummer that you can’t really celebrate! My brother is in a similar situation. He’s graduating high school and there is talk of the entire ceremony being cancelled. I wish I had some ideas for you. I guess you could always bake a cake to share with your parents? It’s not fancy, but you really can’t go wrong with cake.
