All the Frills: The Wall o' Diplomas

One of my favourite things about being out of an apartment and into a more spacious house is that I finally have enough wall space to display all my framed odds and ends. And that includes my diplomas, which I’ve been packing around in a box for the last several years – in the case of my BA for about 10 years as I earned it in 2003 and never really had room to hang it, until now). So now I can hang them up in all their glory – the BA and MA, the second MA, the MPhil, and the PhD. Mostly it’s just a daily visual reminder of time I’m never getting back….but that’s still worthwhile, right?

I love that the Yale diplomas are entirely in Latin.

I had no idea that Yale diplomas were written entirely in Latin - very impressive. I must say though, this post is making me very guilty for having my one measly degree tucked away in a drawer ;)

Haha, nope I am a shoe loving, clutch loving, nail painting stereotype.

Yikes, those new turtles look down right frightening! I will happily live on with the memories of the 90's classic.

And congrats on all your acheivments and finally getting to display them in all their glory!
