Thanks to some St. Patty’s Day magic, a plan is in motion. Well, it is soon to be in motion, barring any complicated reasons as to my visa application being “unsuccessful.”
I had been putting off checking my school email all week and finally decided I should do something productive this weekend. In my inbox, I found an eight-email long chain between my classmates about graduation. Why the hell are we talking about graduation already? The program isn’t over until August…
Then I notice the email from the director about graduation details. It looks like commencement is June 2nd in Boston.
We are invited to walk and will receive some sort of dummy diploma until we actually finish. I had always planned on going (sentiment), but getting a false sense of completion is going to be annoying now. Whatever.
I was planning on jumping the pond on May 27th, but now I’m faced with a better plan, I think.
June 1st, I would fly to Boston with my mom, dad, and brother, we could enjoy some sights for some of the day, go to graduation in the morning, enjoy some more sights and then have a nice dinner together to celebrate. The next morning, June 3rd, I would hop a plane for London and my family could fly back home.
Now I have a purposeful date in mind and I can start making arrangements.
That is, if the “detailed notice” doesn’t tell me to stay my Yankee ass home. Hmm.
