Graduations in Chi.na are celebrated a little differently than home. Families don't come to graduation, gowns are borrowed from the school instead of purchased, and the main thing that students do to celebrate is take pictures with each other around campus.
My friend (and teacher) Ting Ting just graduated with her Master's from my university so today in the afternoon between tests, a few of us met up on the lawn at school and took some pics to celebrate her graduation!
Ting Ting is one of the most precious people I know, I'm really glad to be her friend and that we've gotten closer since she's been my teacher. (I have her class's test tomorrow!)
Here's some of my fave's from the photo shoot!
Nate, Hannah, me, Ting, Dan. (I am forever the person between two couples...)
Ting got creative and passed around her hat for the photo shoot. Then I got butt-bumped by my teacher. hahaha.
While we were taking pictures, Ting saw my gym bag from this morning's yoga class and asked if I was going to the gym. I explained that I already went this morning and went straight to my test after my yoga class. "So American," she said, "Chi.nese students would never do that." "What do you mean?" I asked. "They would study the whole morning, then go take the test," she answered.
Happy Graduation to Ting Ting!
walk slow. xoxo.
