Finally had a chance to go find my composite in the biology building today! I walked allll around to only realize that it’s in the front of the building by the biology advising office… silly me. But I found it! How unreal is that? 4 years ago I was just a UBC noob, and look at me now! A UBC alumni! The bio building will forever hold my photo! So happy! :)

Officially a university graduate

May 27, 2013.

Today I celebrated a huge milestone in life: university graduation. I am so very blessed to have been surrounded by my family, friends and boyfriend. I couldn’t have done it without you.

My lovely family that’s been there since day one. The people who loves me unconditionally, and I, them. Words do not begin to describe my gratitude towards them. Just thank you and I love you with all my heart.

My sister, the bestest sissystar I could’ve asked for. Thanks for helping me with everything, always lending an ear and supporting me through it all.

To my aunt who came on her day off just to see me walk across the stage for like 10 seconds. Thank you so much.

These are my first friends from university. These two girls has literally been there since day one. Thank goodness for MUG groups and forgotten schedules. Thanks for coming and celebrating this day with me, Vian and Clarissa. Love you two so very much.

These girls have helped me so much with multiple courses. I always have so much fun whenever we get to hang out and do crazy things. We always have the best talks. Even though I haven’t known them that long, I know that we will always be friends. Thank you so much for coming! And I forgot to tell you, but I wore the dress you girls got me for my birthday. It’s hiding under the gown.

From elementary school to high school and now university graduation, my bestest friend of 17 years has helped me through everything and really shaped me into who I am. Thank you for being such an awesome friend. I know we’ll always be friends and when we’re both 100, we can talk about our lives and 95 years of friendship over high tea and scones.

Our studying days were fun. I surely missed studying with you guys in the last 2 years. But I’m glad we still see each other and studied together one more time for my last final exam. Thank you for teaching me PAD PED, lac operon expression, integrals and all the stuff that makes me want to cry. And most importantly, teaching me how to spin my ochem model like a toy top. Honestly couldn’t have done it without you guys.

Miss Karen for waking up and sitting and standing and holding my stuff for me. Thank you so much for coming! I’m so thankful to have met you and that we’ve become such good friends.

So happy to see my friend Orla and Ronald who bussed all the way here just to say congratulations and celebrate with me.

A huge congratulations to all the fellow graduates photographed here and the many that are not. WE MADE IT! We are officially UBC Faculty of Science graduates! Good luck with everything in the future!

And lastly and importantly, this is David, the love of my life. Thank you for dealing with me day in and day out. Listening to me rant when I’m angry,, happy… well pretty much all the time. Thank you for supporting me in pursuing my dreams and helping me make decisions. For driving me to exams and my graduation in the wee hours of the morning, and picking me up at night from all my exams. Thank you for telling me honest words, always. Thanks for taking all these amazing pictures! I love you to the end of the world.

I’m so blessed to have such amazing friends and family and even more blessed that they all came to celebrate this milestone with me. I love you all and am forever indebted to you.
