I have deleted “student” from my Twitter bio, because on Friday, June 15th, 2012 (tomorrow night from current posting,) I officially graduate from the University of Guelph with my English B.A. Hons. (For science-y and mathematical types, that means “did a shit load of reading and perfected looking pensive.”)
Some of my family members who still speak to me read my blog, so for them – and others, if you’re interested and/or want a warning to show your children about dropping out of high school when they’re 16, smart, bored, and think working at a gas station is the ticket out of a small town high school, feel free to click here. The University streams convocation live and my ceremony starts at 7pm EST. My last name falls in the second half of the alphabet, so you should probably be able to finish a half bottle of wine by the time I come on stage.
Here are some of my favourite posts since 2009 about my experiences at University.
* Also, if my partner is reading this and still looking for graduation gift ideas, he should know that whole honey glazed hams are a nice sentiment.
