Woke up at 7:30 to get ready for my commencement ceremony. My parents arrived at around 8:05, and I ran over with them and barely arrived at 8:15. We were lined up in the back, and entered the greek amphitheater soon after. The ceremony began at 8:30. Vodaphone’s ex-CEO gave the commencement address.

There were a bazillion students graduating, and the reading of names went on until noon. I sat with dave, pri, and lita. Dave is from the church I attended as an undergrad, while pri and lita are two other 5th year students I partnered up with for my mobile computing course.

My parents, brother, uncle, and grandparents were in attendance. The place was so packed that most people weren’t able to sneak in like they were able to do in years past. There were security people patrolling the perimeter during the whole thing.

After the ceremony, joe and I went to sunday service at gracepoint, where Pastor ed preached a sermon on “Summer of Discipleship”. We saw a lot of old friends there for the first time in a year since we graduated.
