This past week has been surreal. After many years of school, countless hours of studying, pages and pages of essays and research, and novel upon novel, I have officially completed my Bachelor of Arts Degree (Major in English, Minor in History).
My convocation ceremony was held on Thursday, one of the coldest days in June I can ever remember (I could see my breath). It was an outdoor ceremony, but luckily the rain held off for us until after it had ended. Afterwards my family and I took photos under cover, and Adam and I stopped by the reception held for English students where we had some snacks and complimentary wine. It was well deserved, I think.
This weekend my mom held a party in my honour to celebrate. It was such a wonderful afternoon surrounded by my many friends and family who have supported me throughout my scholarly journey. I will be returning to school in the Fall to begin my Teaching program. Again, it was a record breaking day for June, not in terms of heat, but in terms of rain. It poured, the entire day. The fog also began to set in. Thankfully we had ample room inside for everyone to mingle.
Here are some of my favourite moments from this past week.
