Kat’s Graduation

The Munchkat graduated May 15, 2009 from the University of Arizona.  It was in a packed Tucson Convention Center – standing room only and 10,000 seats filled.  It was a no frills ceremony – no speeches (save the strange one at the beginning that Mom later identified as a request to turn off our cell

phones), no honorary degrees convened.  What they did do however, was read EVERY name of all the graduates in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.  All 1500 of them.  The highlights, and all the random stuff between, is best captured in the following transcript:

13:05, Kat:  Already bored haha

13:06, Aud:  Lol, this reminds me of when you were a frosh and would text in class

13:07, Kat:  Haha, I still text in class
