Day Eighty-one: Walking Clothes

I will mortar board your face

Last week I picked up my cap n’ gown for graduation during the second week of May. I also have some pimpin’ red/white cords that I get to wear for the big day because of how awesome my GPA is currently. Summa Cum Laude in your face!! (For students 3.8-4.0 GPA, highest academic honor at my university)

I wore my hat and cords and work for about half an hour and as most students do, everyone completely ignored me.
I’m very excited about walking and can only hope not to trip or do anything really stupid during my walk. I just realized yesterday that I need to plan on what kind of outfit to wear underneath my robe. No nekkid walks!

With a To-Do list as long as I am tall I can only hope I graduate in May with my sanity still mostly there.
Wish me luck!

Day Sixty-Four: Tour de Campus

inspiring picnic shelter

While I was in Illinois my brother had to take class (his spring break is next week). So, while we waited for him to get out of class, Befflets and I roamed Southern Illinois University’s campus.

I am so jealous. In the middle of campus there is a pretty sizable man-made lake [pictured in background]. I told my sister that I would be out there every day between classes just floating in a kayak. Oh, recreation majors :)

I sincerely hope the students use it whether it be for water sports, meditation/reflection, or hanging out while grilling out. It was just so pretty! There was of course a boat barn on one side of the lake which I assume rents its canoes to any student with a little cash.

Pictured, is the fun looking hex-picnic shelter. I had to take a picture and swore to my sister if I ever have to develop a recreational area in my administrative future I would want it to be pretty to look at like that one. I’m sure it costs a whole heck of a lot more than a squared off A-frame roof.
