Gradhood


I got my graduation robes yesterday and because I'll be getting, or is it awarded, a Masters of Library Science, I also have a hood that will go with the gown. Its kind of cool, actually. No, wait, it is really cool, the hood that is. It is black hood, with an inside lining of red and big white stripe (IU's colors are Red and White [crimson and cream]). I'm not sure who decided it, but the color for Library Science is lemon yellow. That borders the hood.

When I put the whole shebang on I felt a bit like a wizard. The hood is quite heavy around the neck. I shall choke because of it, I fear.

Its hard for me to believe that I am almost done. I will be going through the ceremony on Sunday (3 pm) but will be officially done in August after I complete two more classes.

So, Sunday is the end, middle, and beginning of another stage in this strange weird movie called life. Where's Sydney Pollack when you need him.

Make sure your folks take pictures!

If the ceremony go on for too long, use your wizard powers to cut it short.

Oh, they will. I'm sure. As for the wizard powers? Well, I dont know about that, but I am going to take my iPod and have it in my ear. I might even take a book and read it during the ceremony. Is that bad?

No. It's fitting.
