It's Graduation Day!

Today I'm graduating with my Masters degree! I can't help thinking back over all the years that I've been at University and marveling at how far I've come and how much I've grown as a person. I barely recognize the girl that arrived in Stellenbosch over 6 years ago. And, of course, I can't help looking back at the photos from my previous graduations!

December 2009 - Bachelor of Science in Chemical Biology (Fresh faced! No research work yet meant no wrinkles or grey hair ;) Also, after years of dyeing my hair dark, I'd started to lighten it up a bit.)

December 2010 - Bachelor of Science with Honours in Chemistry (Only one year later, but a lot older and wiser! It was also the era of the blonde asymmetric bob, longer in the front, super short in the back.)

Continuing in the grand tradition of Stellenbosch graduations, this week has been absolutely sweltering, so here's to surviving another afternoon in >35°C heat indoors with thousands of people while wearing thick, oversized, synthetic academic gowns! 


  1. Whoop-whoop!! Congrats!!! xx

  2. Congrats Laura Jane. Wrinkles? You look like you haven't aged since 2009!

  3. Congrats Hun. You look gorgeous! xxx

  4. Wow! Masters congrats! That is amazing :)
