Diplômé


"You cannot help but learn more as you take the world into your hands. Take it up reverently, for it is an old piece of clay, with millions of thumbprints on it"
-John Updike


I can now call myself a university graduate! Four years of amazing friends, hard work, fantastic professors and memories to last a lifetime. It's difficult to believe that it's all over, time goes by so fast. When I came home from my last exam, I was pleasantly surprised to find a beautiful bouquet of flowers, gifts and a card commemorating the day for me.


A wise friend told me after the exam that graduation is only a concept, because you graduate everyday. It is a process that goes on until the last day of your life. If you can grasp that, you'll make a difference.


"Life is my college. May I graduate well, and earn some honors"
-Louisa May Alcott
