That's it, it's official. I now have a Master's degree. Took me long enough, but it's done. I convocated yesterday. Despite trying desperately to avoid attending one of my own convocations I was convinced to attend this one. My friends all sat on the stage in their various regalia, looking - not surprisingly - quite regal. We even managed a couple of good groups shots after the ceremony.
It was a lot of fun to have my friends there. Everyone came to hug me as I crossed the stage. Someone asked me after why I got the "VIP treatment"! Because I have such great friends, that's why. We all went out for brunch, and had a great time.
