While April didn’t start off well in my books (we ended the day in an ER, no less), I am grateful for the time it has allowed me to spend with family. My cousin graduated from senior high school last Saturday and it was a much-needed break from my homebody routine during weekends. Our jam-packed afternoon began after dropping off food for my mom and aunt at the IEC Convention Center. We then dropped by Landers for something to eat before we trooped to the nearest mall while waiting for the ceremony to finish.
A six-hour event is just too much for one to sit through even with a 30-minute break so perhaps (bigger) schools/universities might want to schedule this by strand next year?🤔 For one, the snack area was a logistics nightmare not to mention the crowd control, on who gets to enter the hall once the program started, wasn’t even strictly implemented.
Knowing too well that no one can be bothered to prepare food at home, a dinner reservation we made at the 11th hour ultimately saved our tummies. My mom, who’s used to playing host, found the service a bit slow but I suppose it was expected given the occasion and the influx of customers on a weekend.
I was just too happy not to worry about who’ll be doing the dishes afterwards.😂
