Graduation Makeup and Outfit Breakdown (OOTD & EOTD)

I graduated last Friday... again!

So... I might've spent 6 years at university, the first 4 years studying Psychology - mainly because I was  fresh out of high school, experiencing social/identity perplexities and was on the hunt for meaning, purpose, reason....  you know, the usual developmental stages of a teenager.  This bachelor's degree worked better than counseling or going to see a Psychologist. With 20k of HECS debt... I really did expect results. Eventually, I realised it wasn't something I can develop into.

Off I went, back into the wood works for 2 years of Masters. I learned more about empathy than I did in Psychology. I earned countless acquaintances and not enough friends to count. The first semester consisted of 4 days of work per week and skipping a lot of classes. By the time I began to attend uni studiously, cliques were formed and groups were established. Sprinkle some anti-social behaviour and Voila! I graduated with Distinction average - not that it matters in a Masters degree...

I told my mum that I'll go back to do my PhD one day, she threatened to throw all my make up away and told me "NO MORE UNI!!!!!"





I ordered two standard sized photos for $66 (by standard, I mean the ones you usually get developed for 10c at a photo shop) highway robbery? I'm still waiting for the photos to be delivered... so here's one I ripped off the online preview.


Now to the makeup breakdown....

  7. Congratulations on your Masters Lily! I also did something similar. Fresh out of high school and wasn't sure exactly what to do, so I took something that sounded really interesting. I loved what I was studying but I found out belatedly, that it wasn't an area I wanted to work in. So I'm back doing my Masters and I can definitely relate to the anti-social behaviour come exam time. LOL - Masters, for me at least, is proving to be wayyyy tougher than undergrad.

    Congratulations once again!

    1. Thanks Valentine! ^_^ Oh, when I started my Masters, I had absolutely no idea what the hell was going on. The pracs really helped me to get a grasp of what I'm studying. I think fieldwork should be integrated into more courses... I had no exposure to anything other than research in Psych, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Best of luck for your degree!!

  26. Congratulations! I spent 5 years at university and hated every second if it. I can definitely appreciate how much work you must have done and what an achievement this is. A masters sure is impressive. I always wanted to do psychology I thought it would be incredibly interesting. Love your dress. I wore a review dress for my graduation too. It's definitely the way to go!!
