I was looking through my email accounts hunting for old essays and assignments from my university days and chanced upon a few photos of my graduation. Here i am (looking super young) with my ku and papa.
I remember this day really vividly, and how incredibly proud of me they both were. They travelled from Te Aroha to be with me, which meant a lot as at the time my parents were in Niue and couldnt make it back to see me graduate.
I remember it being boiling hot in wellington and i was dying under my giant woolen gown, and everyone was making comments on my somewhat unconventional grad gear choice - a red and white polka dot halter dress and red and white irregular choice shoes with spury goodness. I still own both, i wore the shoes yesterday…
much love and happiness.
