I am officially a Master of Fine Arts. I can officially put it on my resume and have it be legitimate. I successfully walked up to get my diploma without falling on my face in the one-inch heels that I successfully rolled my ankle in on several occasions just minutes before.
Here are some things I learned from graduation day that I didn’t take note of from my undergraduate.
1. My hair doesn’t curl.
No matter how many hours, days, and weeks I put into curling my hair for the big day, it just won’t hold. And yes, I know there is a thing called hairspray, but that only makes it worse. It’s not worth it to be almost late for your graduation because you were curling your damn hair.
2. No matter how comfortable the heels seem, re-think it.
I can only handle half-inch heels, but I have a hard time finding them. So I can’t clarify this enough. Those heels only SEEM comfortable because you are walking around in them for a whole two minutes before buying them. The reality is, you’ll be wearing them for hours, and you’ll want to saw off your feet like that blonde guy did in Saw.
3. You’re going to look stupid in the cap
Even if my hair ended up being perfectly curled, the cap would still look dumb.
4. There will be crying.
There’s not stopping it. It will happen.
