Prepare for Graduation

Friends have already been to their children’s graduation.  They have warned me of over-priced gowns, sweltering queues, the overburdening of taxi services and restaurants on the festal day. 
I’m glad to see that Pascoe’s graduation will be on the verdant and expansive UEA campus.  One of my own graduations was in the SunderIand Empire – a theatre famed for its tough audience where many comics have “died”.  Luckily my task on that day was to avoid being a laughing stock rather than the reverse. 

And Pascoe’s graduation is at a reasonable time in the morning  so we don’t need to drive over the night before.   I look at the forecast.  Another scorcher – we’ll take a picnic and eat it next to one of the Henry Moores, reclining on the green lawn rather than joining the scrum for a pub lunch.   Then there is to be a civilised drinks reception in a marquee where Pascoe will collect the - ahem – George Duncan Memorial Prize for outstanding achievement.  Sounds idyllic.  What could possibly go wrong?

  1. It is never too easy to prepare to graduation. Depending on the degree students pursue they whether need to accomplish thesis or dissertation writing. Neither is easy to do unless you choose to buy a dissertation online, of course. Well, let’s not forget about exams after all. I know many students who end up treating their nerves with different medications after they graduate. It is that much pressure they get to experience. This is not fair for sure.
    Same way there is no other option=)
