Even though I finished my master's degree last July (and received my diploma shortly after), my actual graduation ceremony took place this past Sunday.
Because the school only does graduations once a year, I had the pleasure (not!) of waiting 11 long months to "walk the stage"... I will admit that I considered not going to the ceremony at all, but it was Father's Day and my dad really loves this kind of stuff...so I went!
It was exciting despite my low expectations....and even though the whole thing was long as hell (why are graduations so freaking long!?), I did find some pleasure in seeing my parents light up and enjoy taking pictures of me in my cap and gown... for the memories! ;)
Here are some pics...
...and of course this won't be my last graduation since I plan on going for my PhD (I already have 15 credits towards that...yay!) and one day (hopefully not too far away..) becoming Dr. Perez! ;)
