Calling all friends in Melbourne who are free to swing by Melbourne U campus today. Yi's finally graduating, with a Master's Degree in Architecture, after 1 year of foundation, 3 years of bachelor's studies, 1 year of work and 2 years of grad studies (read: a lot of money and time spent). She doesn't want to invite anyone because she knows most people are working. When I asked for phone numbers of my friends (which she keeps in her phone) she was very evasive, finally telling me yesterday that her phone is ruined after a week-long trek in the Tasmanian wilds last week. I'd like to invite Simon & Margaret, Emily & Chris, Leon & Vero, Betty & Thomas and all our friends (I don't have your numbers) who can make it before the ceremony (before 5:30 when they file into the hall or after 8 pm when they go out), to come take a photo on this happy occasion. I do have two extra tickets to go into the hall but graduation ceremonies are boring, more so for the masters and phDs students who are the last to be conferred.
Would love to see you there!
