I attended my convocation ceremony last Friday morning (June 12, 2009). I was glad I attended the event, despite having to hobble around on my crutches (I fractured a few bones in my left foot playing squash a few weeks ago). It was especially nice to have gone, as I was unable to attend my undergraduate and masters convocation ceremonies. But last Friday was a perfect, sunny day, and my mother was overjoyed to be there. I was able to introduce her to my supervisor and a few of my friends, for which I am very thankful for.
