Kasia M 15 May 2019

Graduation is such a happy time for all those who have gotten through school and lived to tell about it. But sometimes things don't exactly turn out as one had hoped.

Cheers to those times when new grads found themselves in awkward situations that ended up being far from perfect but totally hilarious instead.
