Before I begin this post, I would like to say that I loved Kelly Rowland's performance. Wasn't a fan of the outfit till I realised she may have been making a statement. That she could be sexy even fully clothed. BIG BIG message for girls today. Good one Kelly. #Riseoftheunderdog. Greetings from a blogger who was so deep in fun that I felt that I was having an 'out-of-body' experience. And then quickly thrown into sorrow. My friend is being buried on Tuesday and I pray for her family. Here's the post I was about to put up before I got the bad news.
So, on June 9th, 2011, My twin and I graduated from Uni. Her with Distinction in Environmental Engineering and me with High Honours in Finance. The ceremony was amazing with my dad barely making it in time for my 9am graduation. He had to drive in from Boston to make it and got in at 5 am. My brother didn't make it though. He missed his flight and after a series of flights cancelled and even one of the pilots saying he was 'too tired' to fly, he got in 3 days later. Even then, my mum and I had to drive 3 hours to Syracuse airport from Ottawa.
After the ceremony we hosted a dinner with 60 of our closest friends and to say that it was emotional would be an understatement. So many kind words, so much love and a bit of goodbyes since my sister and I are leaving. Our very good friend/big sister, Christal Jeanne from Be Bold and eBusiness News Ghana went as far as reading emails we sent to her from secondary school in 2005. I was bragging about my purchase of my first 'non-brief' panties. Yes! She said it in fron tof 60 people, my dad inclusive. So Shameful! To crown it all, my sister and my parents were featured on our University Website Homepage. So amazing
That being said, I just found out that my twin and I are counterfeit. We aren't REAL twins. I hate to break the news to you but we aren't. Well biologically we are. But I met twins that feel each other's pain. Like for real. I have always been cynical about books that said that about twins till they said one twin had a broken leg and the other twin couldn't walk. YES. Some scary stuff. So I ask, since my 'twin' and I can't feel these things, are we frauds? sigh. The things we find out each day.
Anyways! Here are pictures from our events. I'm all for sharing experiences because I'm hella proud of my friends and family. With the things happening around me, I am learning to celebrate life and share it with the world. God bless you all!
