I was getting a lot of spam so I left this comment on that post :

OK SPAMMERS.. why are u so obssessed with this posting?? I’m not gonna ever approve all your spamming so please stop, its getting annoying marking you as spam… plus what is so special about this specific post??
I dont know?

When I e-mailed the lady at UTM for the graduation ceremony photos she got a quote from me and now I found out its public.

40th anniversary celebrations start with a bang (June 07, 2007)

“I was deeply proud to help celebrate this day that reflected our history, growth and our vibrant and cohesive community,” said Vice-President and Principal Ian Orchard, who led the academic procession. “This type of procession has not taken place on campus since the 1970s.” It was a special experience for the students. “The walk to the gym left me feeling proud,” said 2007 graduand Rizwan Choudhary.

I found my old e-mail that I talked to the lady about, here is what it says.

Yes you may. In fact I would like to add that it is not just the procession that made me feel proud. The diversity of the campus has always made me feel welcome. Being a Muslim student and having halal food available is just a small reflection of the diversity that I have become familiar with at UTM. Sharing stories and experiences with friends of different locations, languages, and cultures is what makes our campus so unique.

Now when I reflect on this comment, and I am still sitting jobless and I wonder what skills I have acquired from my University I feel a bit baffled, as all the web design stuff we learned is obsolete but at least I experienced four.. err five years of hell :).
