Most definitely, the best part of graduation was (and always is) the afterwards. I walked from homeroom to homeroom, got shouts of, "Kyashi sensei!", spontaneous hugs (rare in this country) and lots of photo opps.
All of the third year teachers in the teachers' room after the ceremony. Doesn't everyone look so nice? The woman on the left side is the vice-principal of the school.
After I got home, Jeff saw a great photo opp. What's better than a beautiful woman, a bouquet of flowers, and, man oh man, absolute perfect lighting outside. "C'mon, Kath, we gotta go right now! Another half an hour, and it'll be too late!" Yes, dear. It was a coldish, windy day. He managed to take about 25 pictures in two minutes. Heck, who am I to complain? It's nice to feel like a supermodel every now and then.
