Today I met my friend for a late lunch at The Cheesecake Factory. Our lunch was to celebrate her dissertation being approved and her new job at Notre Dame. I am so happy for her and all of her accomplishments! She is one of the people who helped pull me through the first year of the program and kept me moving forward.
I will miss her being right across town, but we will definitely keep in touch via email and I'm sure she will be back to visit. She leaves Sunday for Indiana.
Good Luck Amanda! You will be missed around Pittsburgh.
