Graduation is the Beginning of the Rest of Your life

Tomorrow Daughter #2 graduates with a History degree from Birmingham University.

She feels her life is over, such a time did she have in the last three years but really it is just beginning. She’s only 21 after all and the world, as they say, is her oyster. It’s a very pricy oyster nowadays but it is all hers.

Tomorrow we leave Casa Carmichael at the crack of dawn to drive to Birmingham, collect mortarboard and gown (light blue reverse), enjoy the ceremony and lunch with a coterie of other grads and their proud parents. We shall take lots of photos.

After that, university is really truly over and the job hunt begins. Seriously and in earnest because it’s hard to be a girl-about-town with no pecunia in one’s pocket book.

She needs dedication, application and a pinch of luck, all of which I know she can channel if she sets her mind to it.

Enjoy tomorrow, Darling. It’s the beginning of the rest of your life.
