[title subtitle=”Until Graduation”]T-12 Days[/title]
Hi LoDown Fam! I’m here to share with you a story that proves good things really do happen when you least expect them to.
Believe it or not, with graduation fast-approaching, acing exams have been the last thing on my mind. Clouded by daydreams of senior week and walking across the stage to receive my diploma, I’ve been in complete denial. In fact, I’ve even started substituting “graduation” with the “g-word”—a pretty apt title for the future (a.k.a. adulthood) don’t you think?
Anyway, it might come as a surprise to you all, but I was never interested in finding a perfect “G-Day” dress. College is ending and the fun is over. Other than my academic accomplishments, is there really something to celebrate?
A few weeks ago, while home with my mom doing what we do best, shopping and catching, we walked into a store we’ve never visited before. While browsing rack after after, I came across this amazing blue tea party dress and died. Yes, died. I immediately showed it to my mother who urged me to try it on. Mind you, the idea of the dress being my “G-outfit” hadn’t even crossed my mind. As I stepped out of the dressing room with a huge smile across my face, my mother asking where I’d wear the pretty number to, the thought hit me: there’s nothing I’d rather walk across my quad one last time in.
So, there you have it, great things happen when you least expect them to. For those of you graduating alongside me, Congratulations to the class of 2016! Oh, and if you’re still looking for something to wear, I’ve picked out some of my favorite potential looks. But, most importantly, let’s raise a glass together. We did it!
