SENIORS – LAST DATE TO ORDER CAP AND GOWN…
If you missed the vendor on campus and still want to order your cap and gown, stop by the CDC, Kagin Commons, 1st floor by Friday, March 18, 2005. All orders must be received before Spring Break. (Career Development Center)
I don’t have enough money to waste into this stupid one-time costume. I just received $360 for February employment, of which $200 will be spent paying loans (mostly from the OPT application costs), and $100 on cell phone bills, after which I should have about $100 for the rest of the month, and this includes spring break = (meaning no meal plan)
However, if I don’t buy the gown and cap, AND mom and grandma end up coming to graduation (apparently they are under the impression that I want them to come, despite my efforts to show the contrary?), (it is not certain yet whether or not they are coming) they will obviously think it is a big big scandal that I graduate without following proper tradition (i.e. t-shirt and jeans) and waste EVEN MORE money into rushing to some store and getting something resembling gowns and cap, to make up for it. Net result is that we end up spending even more money because I tried to save $20.
But I can’t survive until April 15th on a $80 budget.
Fuck, fuck, fuck.
