So … I graduated!

Jul 12th, 2006 | By | Category: Personal Stories

This morning, I had my graduation ceremony.

Yes, the whole shebang.

Wore a gown, tossed by grad cap outside UCC, and took photos with a lot of old faces.

Since I had officially gotten my degree six months ago … this event didn’t have much sentimental value. Nevertheless, it was a fun use of a wednesday morning (I would’ve had to go down and collect the degree some time anyway).

It was kinda nice to see so many old faces … some of my friends’ parents came over – I didn’t think it was worth the trip for a 3 hour ceremony for my parents. But hey, I still have the gown … the next time they’re in town, maybe I’ll head down to esplanade to snap some pics.

Wanted to really look good for this – was even considering a facial to get rid of the pimples etc. But in the end, I just didn’t have the time to do it … one of my fem friends told me it takes 2-3 days for the redness in the face to disappear. So, I skipped any extensive makeup. But some cream and powder did well to make my face look rather pretty.

Otherwise it was fun … shook hands with some (old fart) deans from SoC before collecting my degree. Got interviewed by University TV. I had a real cute host and we were getting along famously … but then the producer said we’re out of time … so we had to cut the interview in half before they rushed me into the ceremony. Hmmmmm, maybe I’ll go back and ask her to feature me on her radio show.

Oh yeah … and the in-hall camera focussed on me a few times … I had a lot of fun with it :D . Made faces at the camera, shouted, screamed, cheered and generally acted like a monkey who’s getting this 15 seconds of fame :P

Will post photos soon …
