Bastards! :lol:

Last year the electrified wire was stretched out and you had to cup your hands around it while going over little see-saws and stuff. The shock isn't pleasant! The barbed wire ice pit has always been there but it wasn't booby trapped. That'll be fun. :P

Yeah graduation was one of the dullest days of my life too. I didn't want to go, but my mum would have held it against me for the rest of my life if I didn't let her have her day out. I didn't bother with a photo or anything though, got my certificate and was on the M6 back to London 10 minutes later :lol:

Graduation is only for the sake of mothers :) I went to mine to keep her happy.

I still can't believe some unis make you pay for graduation tickets. I managed to dispose of the leaflet for official graduation pics before my folks saw it. And I quite enjoyed my graduation. Not the ceremony that was well boring but it was nice to say a proper goodbye to people from my course.

From Wiki:

Bridges TV is a Muslim television network headquartered in Buffalo, New York. Premiering nationally in November 2004, it was the first American Muslim television network to broadcast in the English language.

Muzzammil S. Hassan, founder[7] and CEO of Bridges TV, expressed belief "that moderate Muslims cannot identify with the extreme stereotypes often depicted in Hollywood productions" and said "They think they are not accurately portrayed...Bridges TV gives American Muslims a voice and will depict them in everyday, real life situations." Hassan also said he hoped the Bridges TV network would balance negative portrayals of Muslims following the attacks on September 11, 2001.


In February 2009, Hassan was arrested and charged with beheading his estranged wife Aasiya Zubair who also worked for Bridges TV.

I remember going to my brother's graduation at Bangor. Took twice as bloody long as it needed to because everything was read out in English and Welsh :lol:

Viral ad from a few years ago, apparently, although God knows what for.

Only waited about 15 minutes.

Didn't really mind, I wasn't too fussed on graduation but my mum wanted to go so much it hurt her.

Being at the graduation photography thing though made me realise I shoulda gone into photography. Paid £8 for a fucking 2MB image file.


Jesus Christ, you were offered the actual file?! I had to fork out about £40 for a set of prints. At least my family seem to enjoy them. It's a little bit creepy seeing all three of our pictures lined up on the mantlepiece.. in age order. :ugh:

Graduation was the most boring day I can remember, and the university couldn't wait to rip us off in all the ways they could think of. £20 for each of my parent's tickets, limited to two each. Only one visit to the reception buffet per student and per guest. Nowhere to sit down. I felt like I should have been really happy and upbeat to match everyone's mood and pride in me, but it was so draining. And robes SUCK.



Well I'll know not to bother with the graduation ceremony if I get into Notts then! :lol:

I had to choose today of all days to go on my first run in about six weeks. And second in about three years thinking about it. So fucking hot! :lol:
