UCLA ecology graduation congratulations winnie
On Saturday morning, my mom, uncle, and great-uncle drove down to LA to attend my sister's graduation on Sunday (yesterday).  Despite having to get up early because the ceremony started at 9, it was a beautiful ceremony with inspiring speeches from Elizabeth Devine and a graduating senior.  I didn't walk for my graduation because I didn't want to inconvenience my family and friends but after attending my sister's, I can see why my parents wanted me to - it is a very special moment and I was a super proud sister and couldn't wait for her name to be called!  Coincidentally her graduation was on Father's Day and I felt that this was the ultimate Father's Day gift to my amazing dad seeing as how this was what he practically lived for, seeing us graduate with our degrees.  Wish he was there with us physically but I know he was cheering with us in spirit as she crossed that stage and flipped that tassel.  Congratulations to my sister and to the Class of 2013!!

I have never been on or even looked up the campus but my oh my, what a stunning campus!  While my sister took post-graduation shots I took the opportunity to get a couple pictures in front of their humanities building.  I thought it was going to be pretty hot down in LA so I wore a simple sleeveless shift dress (myself and most of the guests got the memo to wear blue, haha!) but it was actually pretty chilly in the morning and of course I didn't bring a jacket.  I ended up getting sick after lunch and spent the rest of the day in bed.  At least it was after pictures with the graduate =P.

Going to get some rest and then drive back up in a few hours.  I'm contemplating if I should get myself two cups of boba from Half and Half for the road, yum!  It seems that most of the UC graduations (at least the ones on the quarter system) occurred this weekend so CONGRATULATIONS to the Class of 2013!!!  Take care everyone!
