If a mortar board to the face isn't a sign of the harsh reality after college, I have no idea what is.

The University of Texas at Austin Master's graduate Meagan took to Twitter to share her big day. During the graduation ceremony, Meagan was filming a big firework display when she was hit in the face.

Now you would think a firework would have hit the girl in the face, but no. A random mortar board flew up and then straight down into poor Megan's face. Luckily, she was trying to record her special moment when she was attacked by the graduation hat.

I was just starting to feel that throwing up your graduation cap is a lie, since I've already gone through three graduations without throwing my hat up. I guess it might just be at my ceremonies but at least I haven't been hit in the face.
