-- Stephen Colbert
Lilly Pulitzer Dress
I'm not good at taking pictures when I'm distracted, so that's why you are not gazing upon the visage of Stephen Colbert, who gave an absolutely hilarious speech at our Commencement last Friday. What was apparently the only picture taken of me with my camera on this day was taken before I figured out that I would have to give up on my bangs as long as I was required to wear a mortarboard.
And speaking of academic regalia, let me tell you a little something about those purple robes. Based on my experience at Stephanie and Nina's graduations, I thought I would be in your standard, tea length, flimsy, synthetic robe, just purple instead of black. Oh, no. What I got was a nearly floor length, thick-materialed, suffocating mass of purple synthetic fabric. It was, in case you were wondering, very hot out on the field. My apologies for the lack of pictures, but the heat definitely contributed to my unwillingness to make any unnecessary movements such as reaching for my camera.
Stay tuned for day 2...
