Graduation - the night before...

A whole lot of emotions rolled into one...


I'm graduating tomorrow afternoon. We're leaving for Grahamstown around 8am, because I still need to collect my tickets & gown and check into the hotel. Everything's sorted out...my outfit etc... but I'm feeling so anxious. My friends who graduated last year say that the feeling is perfectly normal. I think my parents are just as excited, if not more than me!

The ceremony is at 14:30, afterwhich my parents will travel back home. My brother, JJ and I are staying on. At 17:00, there's a tea at the Journalism Department. And afterwards...not quite sure what we're doing, but I intend to have a FANTABULOUS time on Friday night! All my friends are going to be there - there's so many people to see and meet, I have no idea where to begin. But I'm just going to go with the flow. Over-planning isn't fun, so I'll just see where the wind takes me.

Saturday afternoon there's a garden tea party for all graduands, and then afterwards we travel to PE. Not really sure what we're going to be doing, but again - I just wanna have a good time & a very memorable week-end. Sunday - also just arb around in PE & head home to good ol' East London.

Feeling all kinds of things right now - excitement...nostalgia, a bit of sadness... sadness cause it's kinda like an end of an era... excitement cause it marks the beginning of a new chapter in my life.

Will blog more after the week-end. Have a stunning w'end, everyone xxx

yeh, i guess what you're feeling is 'perfectly normal'.... but then again, its not every day that you graduate so 'normal', i can imagine, is a bit of a strong word for it all!

plus you gotta remember that not EVERYBODY in SA (or the world over...) gets the opportunity to graduate so in actual fact, you're making up a certain percentage thats fortunate(and smart enough...) to do so!!!!.... what an achievement!!!

i'll be thinking of you...
CONGRATULATIONS LADY!!!!! x x x x x
