This evening we attended the convocation for the Near Eastern Languages and Civilization Department at the University of Washington. My husband is one of 21 graduating with a Bachelors Degree from this department, and one of 3 with a degree in Persian Language and Literature.

Oh my goodness, my head is swimming. I’m so proud of him I’m in danger of bursting into tears at any given moment.

On a side note, why do they schedule these events prior to finals and papers being due? He’s going to end up pulling an all-nighter tonight in order to get a paper in tomorrow and he’s got finals tomorrow and Thursday. Enough already. Schedule these parties after finals. Thank you.

The actual graduation ceremony is on Saturday. And there will be several more parties after that. Then of course he has a summer long French Intensive Seminar and starts his Masters program in the fall.convocation

I’m really hoping that this weather will turn around because the ceremony is outdoors at Husky Stadium and he still isn’t 100% after that bout with pneumonia. He doesn’t need to sit in the rain and wind for hours.
