It's only just sunk in that i'm graduating in July. Granted, it's not my first graduation ever neither is it my first from university. But it'll definitely be the first one that i'll be attending; i skipped my graduation in England because it clashed with my orientation week here in Australia. I applied for my graduation last week but it wasn't until yesterday that i really started thinking about it. My Mum called me to ask me if i'd thought of outfit ideas for my graduation or if i want her to buy me something.
I felt like someone had just woken me up from some sort of dream; i can't believe that 3 years has gone by so fast. Of course, during the process of each semester, i certainly whined about how annoying things and people were and that certainly hasn't changed as i type it. But i've also learnt a lot about myself during these years here. It has also become more obvious to me what i'd like to research for my PhD. It's a bit of a mish mash of different courses i've taken over the last 7 years and there's just a few people here in Australia that are willing to supervise this area of research as most universities here don't offer courses related to it. Luckily for me, we do Business Innovation here at my university and it is a key aspect of the research i'm thinking of doing.
But a research is still far off as i still need to start my Masters. In line with that, i'm yet to apply for my Masters because i'm just too lazy to fill out the form; i definitely need to do it soon if i plan on applying to other universities. But with mine, since i'm already a student i can actually apply on the day my final results are released because as long as i pass, i'll get a place.
Now, back to that outfit idea. After my Mum talked about it, my head just kept rambling with ideas which made sleeping a little bit difficult for me. I don't want to get anything that can only be worn during special occasions. I want something that i can easily incorporate into my daily life after graduation is over. So, my next post will be on the outfits i currently have in mind (i really don't want to buy any shoes). Until then, why not share your ideas on what this curvy lady can wear on her day? It'll be winter here :)
