Is it supposed to be a big deal? The ceremonies I mean...

hahah, you know when i was about to graduate for the first time after 4 years studying architecture...i was honestly drained, and that the idea of waiting (literally) from morning till afternoon doing nothing but WAIT was killing me that i didn't want to go for my graduation ceremony. My mother on the other hand was so proud of me, that she insist of us going. When i saw how important it is for her, i guess to some it is a big deal. I just thought the ceremony (in my university) was not as as intimate ceremony for a student as i would imagine it to be, that by the end of the day it was too draining (mentally, physically) for just a piece of paper we worked so hard on (truth of the matter was, getting that scroll, on the graduation day itself was the HARDEST-the heat, the crowd, the waiting, the line, the noise). At the end of the day, all the beeming and pride was replaced by frustration to get a decent parking spot (too far away), crossed at each other because we were all so tired with the crowd, and upset about paying so much for a single photograph of you receiving the scroll...Believe it or not, the same thing happen the second time i graduated...LOL, i laughed looking at my graduation picture and see, me and my mum smiling when the fact was we were really in a bad mood.

See?this is why I'm thinking of not going to my ceremony...and unlike you probably none of my family will be there,my dad works abroad and I would never make my mum come it'll be torture for her!
Also most of my friends are graduating after me,I don't wanna go there alone,stand in line and watch the rest of my friends with their families...I think I'm probably not going after all..
I'm sorry about your graduation,what was your second one?masters?
Gosh u must be a nerd loool

Rent a robe, Take a picture with a scroll, and hang it on the wall (it's faster that way). Plus, its the certificate that counts...not the whole ceremony. I didn't like the idea of wasting a good solid day over waiting in frustration. Bad energy...LOL. but it's just me. I would suggest you go to at least one graduation ceremony to tell the tale. It's my humble opinion...

My first 4 years was for my degree in Bachelor Science in Architecture (Part 1), and the next 2 years was for my Bachelor in Architecture (Part 2). InsyaAllah, i'm hoping to continue but i'm not too sure when..although i'm already in the process writing my master thesis on my own with little supervision from my more experience collegue (i'm a part time lecturer in one of Malaysia's local university teaching architecture design).

define nerd...LOL!

Rain said...

Doomish said...

Go if you must, but I doubt it would be a good day, not until you take the certificate and on your way home.

It's over rated in my opinion, and what joy would it bring to you if as you mentioned you would be alone there.

On another uplifting note, good job rain, hope your grades are good, and soon we will be welcoming you to the real world lol

Rain said...

Hana said...

hey, i read what every1 tellin u but i'd have different opinion if ur family & friends can come in that day .. i'd tell u go and enjoy and somehow it have nice feeling to c ur family there, for me it was like i didn't c my family in a long time lol .. but since no 1 from ur family & friends would go then maybe i can agree with others :)

Doomish said...

Yes, my parents didn't like my sisters JU graduation, nor did my sister, they forced her to have it, coz i didn't have one nor did my brother when we finished

furthermore, JU has a great experience in screwing up graduation ceremonies big time:)
