wow. my dad graduated with his doctorate today. i got to see him graduate with his masters degree 7 years ago and then to see him walk today was a rush. i’m so incredibly proud of him for what he accomplished. he gave up his good paying job working in the film industry for so many years just to finish school. he didn’t have a high school diploma and was determined. he decided to do three things when he was 43. run a marathon, write a book, and get a phd. as of today, at 60, he’s accomplished all three of those. wow. and tomorrow he turns 61!!! so crazy proud to call him my father. congrats dr. dean albert ramser!
