Master Me

Zara flared dress, Friis & Company ballerinas.
Last night was my graduation ceremony at university. I am now officially done being a student (at least at university)... In Germany, we don't really do caps and gowns and I hardly knew any of the other graduates either. I find it a little sad that we've never picked up on American or British traditions when I comes to university customs and ceremonies. There isn't really a sense of community amongst the graduates and attendance at this one event is very sparse. However, I did go last night (instead of just picking up my certificates at the dean's office) to get a certain sense of closure. I also have really sweet friends who got me a cap from an online shop so I could have some of that obvious postgraduate glamour. Random people kept smiling at me a bit funny, like they approved :)
