“4 colleges. 4 majors. 19 years. 1 diploma. Done.”

That’s right…my higher-order life-liver sister is, as of yesterday, a college graduate! San Francisco State will now be sending her letters for the rest of her life asking for contributions of time and money and joining alumni groups and attending reunions.

But, I gotta say it: I’m pretty proud of my little sister today.

Congratulations, Jilly!
