100 and 1 degree!

I got up bright and early for my cousin Jasmine’s graduation. I was told the ceremony started at 8AM. In order to get to the university at a relatively decent time, I had to get up at 6AM. This is a huge feat because I have really become accustomed to my lady of leisure status. These days 9 o’clock is early. Because I am supportive Cousin Anne, I got ready and hauled myself out to Fullerton.

I found out once I got there that I probably could have gotten a few more Zzzz. Jasmine wasn’t scheduled to walk across a stage until 10AM. Oh well. I took the time to catch up with my other cousins Janine & Jovan. It was miserably hot. At peak, it was about 100 degrees with minimal shade.

Some people brought umbrellas for shade. I wish I had.
While others got REALLY creative and made their own hats

After baking in the sun for a few hours, Jasmine finally walked across the stage and was acknowledged for her undergraduate degree in psychology.

Jasmine graduated cum laude with a Bachelor’s of Art degree in Psychology.

After it was all said and done, this is what I had to show for it.
SUNBURN! I had to take a picture of this because I only burn once every 15 years. I am usually fanatical about sunblock. For those who have outdoor graduations to attend, don forget the sunblock!

  1. You are good cousin!! We sat under the tent for bro’s graduation, which meant we were 10000 miles away and could only see him on the Jumbo-tron, but it was worth it. I would have melted in that sun yesterday!!
