I had a hood! Made me feel like I was in Hogwarts =)
My hood--it gave us all a little turtle tail, LOL!

Well you couldn't expect us to stay serious for very long, now could you?
This is quite belated, but I thought I'd still do a blog post about convocation...
As you can see, I had a lot of fun. Even though I technically finished my degree in December, most of my university friends graduated with me in June. I knew everyone (with one or two exceptions) in the first six rows of where I sat (Anthropology first, then English, then History directly behind me). It was a wonderful experience being surrounded by all of my friends from school.
The ceremony was rather short (all things considered), which I appreciated! As well, I can now reveal that my bridesmaid Kelsey was the valedictorian for our ceremony. She knew for a few months but she made me swear not to tell anyone until after (the secret nearly killed me, hehehe). She was super nervous, but she did a fantastic job--even earned a standing ovation from the entire crowd. We English majors stick together ;)
So yes, I now have my Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a minor in history =)
Thank you to all of my online friends who supported me throughout the years. Without your guys' continuous encouragement, I wouldn't be where I am today =)
