Arleen Spenceley, M.A.

Yesterday, I graduated with my master of arts in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling from the College of Behavioral and Community Sciences at the University of south Florida.

I’ve written a lot on the blog about grad school already. This time, words aren’t necessary. 

730+ recipients of doctoral and master’s degrees.
I’ll buy dinner for the person who finds me.

The academic hood is obviously designed to keep a graduate’s ego in check.
Yes, you have a master’s degree, but you don’t know how to put clothes on.
Big thanks to the girl who helped me put it on, and to the girl who bobby
pinned my cap to my head. Two thumbs up, ladies, two thumbs up.

Not ready to let go, I wore the cap to dinner.
Possibly also because nobody likes cap hair.
