Future Considerations
We both spent quality 'rent time with Emily today- me, earlier, at their apartment, visiting the kitzels who are still a little skittish around company but have massive fun playing with things together; and then, both of us tonight, with her on the phone.

She's having some scheduling issues at work as she gears up for the final push on her thesis film. I hadn't realized how much of a work-in-process it still is; technically, she can keep working on it until May 16th, the Friday before graduation, and still have it graded and screened in time for the ceremony the following week.

And yes, for those keeping score at home: RIT's Commencement Weekend is May 23 and 24, but the Big Event for us will be the Commencement Ceremony for the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences, which runs from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Friday May 23rd.

There are other college and school ceremonies throughout the two-day period, and an all-college Academic Convocation (where the degrees are actually conferred) at 10 that morning, but the CIAS commencement is the big deal for Emily and her crew. Her own subgroup's pre-ceremony reception goes like this:

School of Film and Animation
Friday, May 23, 2:30-4 p.m. - 050 Gannett/SoFA lobby
Asst'd mini pizzas, spinach & cheese in phyllo, smoked chicken quesadillas, Swedish meatballs, cheese, crackers, fruit tray, asst'd biscotti, cream puffs, coffee, tea, lemonade. Small cafe tables and seating. Informal, no program.

The weekend before will be the screenings of her and her fellow seniors' thesis films.

Be in touch with us, or we will with you, if any or all of the foregoing is of interest.
