*drum roll*

You know, I don't claim to be smart when it comes to paper processing ... but you'd think this little piece of paper called a 'degree' wouldn't take so long to make! Four years, and it's so tiny! Seriously. In a play-off-words of our favorite 90's chihuahua... "I think I need a bigger frame". I gotta make it look as important as it feels ;P

Aside from the obvious awesome factor, there were a few things I'd like to address.

1. If you're ever a key-note speaker, don't talk about yourself. Don't drop the name of whatever group it is you're fronting (repeatedly), and don't make it all about you. Why? Because it's not! It's about the graduates.

2. Our institute is about Art and Design. So why were 90% of the speakers talking about art as if it was only the Fine Arts? I'll tell you why -- the speakers they had were only involved in the Fine Arts department. There was no mention of Design except by the faculty speaker, Gary Olson (who had the best speech there by far). It almost felt like I was at the wrong convocation.

3. Don't throw your hats unless you're in a big open area! I felt like I was in Mexico except instead of bullets falling, it was hats!

Now that it's all over, I wonder sometimes when the next time I'll see them all is. Thank goodness for Facebook -- without it, who knows where we'd be? Maybe one of them will be in the paper industry, and can tell me why on earth a degree takes four long years to make. It'd be so much easier to just whip one up in Photoshop.
