so how was the convocation, you asked? all went well. too bad there's not enough fellow graduands to share the joy with. it was so fast, ended 30 mins earlier than schedule. upon completion of academic procession, there's a few minutes of speech, followed by presentation of graduands and another speech by a graduate representative. and that was it. with a blink of an eye, it's all done.
at the end of the ceremony, blue-robbed-graduands threw their mortar board up in the air, accompanied by all kinds of joyful noise. the black-robbed-graduands just stared blankly. been there, done that.. ;)
