Today I have received an official email from my university notifying me of the fact that my thesis work has now been graded, and that I have been awarded the LLM in Food Law with Merit.
I am obviously puffed up with pride and self-importance, and will probably be parading with my nose stuck insufferably up in the air for quite a while. I have decided not to travel to the United Kingdom for my graduation because 1. there are nicer destinations than United Kingdom in the summer (I can totally skip getting rained on during the graduation ceremony), and 2. the city will be full of everyone’s relatives traveling there for the ceremonies so the hotels would be booked, the prices atrocious, and I just don’t think that it’s worth it for 2 hours of standing around in Hogwarts robes and roleplaying Harry Potter (for those who don’t get the reference, google image search for Master’s graduation robes in the UK). I am really quite fine with getting my diploma in the mail.
The next big things will be: moving to a new apartment (we nabbed an awesome new rental place right in the city centre, and across from a mountain with a park – yay!), contemplating a Ph.D. application, and a few other fun things such as writing more blog posts for this place.
In the meantime, you may address me as Legum Magistra (Mistress of Laws).
