A dearest friend just graduated from imperial college MA. The ceremony is holed at Royal Albert hall. The opening speech was very emotional. I remember when I attended my brothers graduation in Cambridge, it was a big deal, even my Father showed up.
My friend had a struggling time when she started the course (BA+MA) she almost quite. She made it to the end, she’s a 23 girl , 5”1, with a engineering MA. God I’m so proud of her. So is the college. The ceremony showed so much respect to their students. The vows at the end by the students felt so sencear. They are proud graduates.
I’m having a hard time with my college at the moment. So hard that I don’t think I believe in it anymore. I figured that doing art, probably means that I need to have faith with that I do other than what others think. Finding my own path, passion, confidence and joy is what I choose to do. When all of the above could be confusing and challenging, the last thing I need is to have college against my side.
I don’t expect a proud and big graduation no more, instead of making my family proud I wish I could make them stop worrying. I wish I know how.
Oh dear, did I just manage to moan about my problems when I’m on my friend’s graduation ceremony!?
I love you Yili, thank you for being in my live and being the most honest friends and have all the faith in me and what I do. Thank you for being around when I had all that emotional&demanding time back then and tell me that I have the most amazing smile when I was crying like a pig. (no boyfriends has ever done that even) thank you for taking care and care for me. I love you so much.
Congratulations and all the best in the world deserve to happen to you!!!
