For those who don’t know, I am graduating on May 19th -wanna come?
Okay, so I’ve had this strange color curse involving schools I attend. I was an orange and black Oriole when I was in junior high and high school. I was at North Central back in the day when they were the Flames. I think the colors were like maroon and yellow or red and gold? I can’t remember, but they were not good -not like the blue and gold (or whatever they are now).
Now I’m graduating from college and I am aghast to find that they insist on us graduating in our school’s color. I don’t know what would possess them. Some of you may love this color, but I have disliked it for most of my life -this specific shade of it I mean.
Yes, that’s right. As I’m sure you gathered from the photo, I will be graduating in a gown in a similar shade of purple- or ‘grape’ as my school likes to call it. I am graduating in something called Grape. Ugh.
