Four years of exams, stress, assignments and depression later I’ve finally got a certificate to prove that I am an Engineer. I never thought this day would come. I never though I’d actually be this happy. But yes, God has been so unbelievably good to me. 
I finally got to wear the rented coat/gown thing with a red sash around my neck that thankfully did not clash with my outfit. There was no graduation cap, unfortunately. But then after I received my degree there was one photographer waiting who pushed me into a corner, slapped a graduation cap on my head and took a picture before I could realize whats happening. And he charged me two hundred rupees for it! All this happened in a matter of minutes. The photo reached my house yesterday. I look like a chubby deer caught in the headlights. 
Before the actual graduation ceremony began we had to ‘rehearse’ for it. Basically all of us just had to run across the stage. I just prayed that when my turn came to walk on to the stage and get my degree I don’t trip and fall on my face. Thankfully I did not do that. But right before my turn came the stupid straps on my stupid heels came undone and I limped across the stage and ambushed the boy in front of me.
I still remember the first day of college and I’m proud of how far I’ve come. I know its just one degree and there are thousands of Engineers out there, most who even deserve it, but for me this really is an accomplishment. I just hope that from now on I get to do something I really like. 
Here’s to better things to come!
