Oh the University…

Alright, my goal for five posts a week (still what I am aiming for) was laughable this week. I hang my head in shame and promise that I will be on my best behavior next week.

Yesterday I went to my mother’s graduation ceremony at Convocation Hall where her title as a Doctor of Philosophy was officially conferred. I am really really proud of her! Here is a picture from inside Con Hall during the ceremony.

Inside Convocation Hall

In first year I had a class here (ANT100 – it was terrible!) and I must say, Con Hall looks much nicer when it is filled with well-dressed people and with professors and graduates in colourful robes, than it does when only an eighth full of bored 18 year olds talking to friends, playing solitaire on their laptops and utterly ignoring the poor professor standing tiny on the stage talking to no-one in particular for 2 hours!
