Convocation Day

You are now reading the blog post of a proud Simon Fraser University psychology graduate! Today was my convocation; an occasion I simultaneously looked forward to and dreaded for the past five years. Today is finally the day and it was arduous but nevertheless liberating. I am excited and I want to share this with you because this marks the beginning of another long and worthwhile journey. Congratulations to all my fellow graduands of 2010.

vintage Floral Dress with Doc Martens boots
I had to wear something weird and fun underneath my unflattering and (un)necessarily dorky academic regalia so I paraded around in the most obnoxiously bright dress (previously belonged to my mom) I could find in my closet.

Grunge style with Floral Dress and Doc Martens Boots and Oversize Hipster SweaterAfter seeing myself in the mirror and realizing just how juvenile I looked, I decided to tone it down by wearing a gray sweater over top. It was a good decision because it not only instantaneously transformed the outfit for the better, but also kept me warm, sitting outdoors for nearly three hours.
