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.
