Graduation Day

Today was the day of my graduation ceremony. I missed it. One hazard of going to university in another country.

Here’s to the friends I made
by accident or by design,
in class, commons, and societies,
instantly or over time.


Here’s to the sleepovers,
and sleepless library nights.
Here’s to Winchester, it’s Cathedral,
and St. Catherine’s hilly heights.


Here’s to my lecturers and their lessons,
from boring to party-like classes.
Today it all officially ends
with the clink of champagne glasses.


Here’s to my adopted home,
and the experiences that I’ve had.
It happened so I’m happy.
It’s over so I’m sad.

I live in Calgary, Canada where I was born and raised, but I lived in Winchester, England for three years while in university. When I was fourteen, I decided there weren’t enough books in the world and set out to make more. Since then, I’ve been writing non-stop and aim to work in the book industry. I have two blogs: is my personal blog where I'll write about anything. is book and writing-related posts including reviews, poems, short stories and articles.
