Important notice - Major update coming on June 1st. Please read carefully.
Five years ago I made a ballsy move and asked John O'Neil (a name shrouded in Internet mystique) to play cards in the Missouri State University Plaster Student Union. We talked about theatre, Black Swan, and liberalism. We made plans to sit together at the Meet & Greet. We lived together for three years. We consoled each other's heartbreak. We swapped boy drama. We jammed to The Bangles on Monday nights. We (he) recorded our (my) sleep talking offenses. We ate hummus and cried. We ate lemon cake and laughed. We made theatre. We were Bert and Ernie. Our SOAR Facebook page, a deck of cards, and a bit of chutzpah. That's all it took. Happy 24th birthday, John James! Wish I could be there to gesticulate wildly and drink deeply with you. I love you oh so dearly. Until June! #BearGrads #Birthdays #Roommates #Friends #Love

Friday the 13th was a good day for me. I finally graduated from Missouri State University. My cap says it all. I went through a lot of stuff to graduate. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia recently. I went through a lot of other stuff I won't put on social media. I DID IT. I FINALLY DID IT. I can call myself a social worker now. However, they DID pronounce my name wrong at graduation. They called me shay-anne not Cheyenne. Thank you to everyone who supported me through this journey. #beargrads #classof2016 #collegegrad

Oh, happy day! Mandisha is one of my dearest friends and she graduated this past weekend! She will be teaching 4th grade in the fall and if I could reenroll in elementary school, I would. She is gentle, and patient, and sweeter than her fav tea which means her kiddos are going to be molded by one of the best humans out there. Congrats, Dish!

Strong has been important to me for about eight years now. The first four years I spent one day every year rehearsing for a meaningful band competition in front of here. The past four years it has been my second home (sometimes I spent more time here than at my real home). From my major and minor being here to PSP meetings in the basement and to being my study spot. I'm bittersweet about leaving it after so many years spent here, but I'm excited for where life leads because of my time here. #BearGrads

My time at Missouri State University came to an end yesterday, but I am so happy to have had the opportunity to come to this school and make Springfield my home for the past three years. I made some unforgettable memories, some great friends, earned a degree, and most of all, met this handsome man. Happy 25th birthday, Nick! I am so proud of you for graduating and so happy we got to do it together! With that personality and those brains of yours, you are going to go far in life and I can't wait to see what the future holds! #HappyBirthday #BearGrads #Graduation #SpringfieldMo #LoveHim #Boyfriend
