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.
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.
After 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.
