I love the feeling of getting things over and done with. Even now, when I think about the moment I’ve finished all my essays and exams, I feel so lively and refreshed. But this convocation was a bit different. At first, when I RSVPed to University of Toronto’s convocation, the process was a bit like signing up for courses. And since it was my family’s third convocation at the same university, we didn’t quite feel the excitement. But now it’s done, and everyone is recapping through facebook or instagram, so I decided to do it through my blog!
The dress hunt was a hard one. I wanted something I’d wear even after the convocation as an outfit. Nothing too bland, but nothing too flashy either. No frills, yet no solids. I found this really cute collared dress at Club Monaco, and the amazing thing about it is, that it’s has pockets! Love it in a whole package. My shoes, I’ve been eyeing for about, maybe half a year. It was a great time for me to finally spend money on my beautiful JCrews.
It’s a bit of a late update, but during the weekends, I went to the Woodbine beach with my bestie. This is possibly the last time we’ll be together in T dot, so we tried to venture out from the normal downtown/uptown routine. It’s sunny, yet a bit chilly here, so the beach wasn’t crazy crowded, just as we liked it.
I’m the type of person that hates to go to the beach with a bikini on and swim in the water or get a tan. I love taking a stroll at the beach, day or night! What I love about the Canadian beaches or lakes are that the water is so nice and clear. Too bad that this felt like a goodbye trip with my friend, it made me happy to see a different part of Toronto!
It’s not my convocation yet, but a lot of them are happening right now! Such a festive season for all my fellow graduates! It’s so overrated to say this line, but I can’t believe it has been 4 years. I’ve watched my sister graduate at this university twice already, and it’s finally my time to celebrate the end of my undergraduate years.
Since mine didn’t actually happen yet, I’ll put all the emotional thoughts aside for a moment. I’ll be more joyful rather than sad when it happens!
So it was my best friend’s convocation on Friday, and we’ve had our festive spirits with us for a few days in a row. Here are some pictures (not of the convocation, but of our after trip to harbourfront <3)
