In news that probably won’t make you feel any younger, Hermione-turned-actual grown person Emma Watson is graduating from Brown University today and will be receiving her degree in English Literature.
Watson first enrolled at Brown in 2009, later taking a hiatus in 2011 to finish filming the Harry Potter series. The overachieving 24-year-old occasionally made reference to her college nerves in interviews, because let’s face it the thought of people shouting “It’s LeviOsa, not LevioSA” at you everyday wouldn’t exactly be the ideal college experience.
“On the first day, I walked into the canteen and everyone went completely silent and turned to look at me,” she recently told US Magazine. “I had to say to myself, ‘It’s okay, you can do this. You just have to take a deep breath and gather your courage.'”
However, the actress says things turned out better than she expected. “I’ve never even been asked for an autograph on campus… I threw a party for nearly 100 students and not a single person put a photo on Facebook.” D’awww.
She was clearly v. excited about the whole thing. I mean, look at all them exclamation marks:
They grow up so fast.
