Up on the stage

ConvocationThis year’s convocation is just around the corner. I will be going up the stage, not for a minute, but for 4 hours (gulp). Not to take any scrolls, but invited as faculty academician to join the ceremony.

I’m quite uneasy and nervous for quite a few reasons. Most of the invited academicians are usually professors, senior lecturers and long-serving members of the faculty, and I don’t seemed to quite understand my selection. I’m a noob around (but never a noob in the university, this is my 8th year in MMU) and I couldn’t possibly be long around to see this batch of students survived their degrees. In fact, many of them are friends to me, juniors to be exact.

Anyway, I relish the honour to join in the procession, and it will be a great occasion for them all, and their parents as well. It is a mark of achievement, a celebration of knowledge, maturity and hehe, freedom (not for me of course…).

To my colleagues who are convocating this weekend as well (for their Masters), have a nice weekend. I’m sure it was worth every drop of your agony. It’s MMU’s bloodthirsty Masters after all. You’re half way there. Keep it going.

Hey John…this is Maran (ex CITS) – I was up on the stage on Saturday – did you catch me getting the scroll? ;-) There were not that many FCM Master graduates, you couldn’t have missed me :-D – How’s life?
