Notes On An Education

After many years of hard work and dedication my time in school came to an end with my high school graduation. In some ways I am so relieved to be done with that part of my life but in other ways I am so sad that it has ended. I am sure you really don't want to read all about my graduation experience however I will leave you with a few tid bits. First off, the caps and gowns we have to wear are bloody hot on a summers day. You will feel as if you are slowly melting as you listen to your classmates give their speeches. You will also wish you had brought a water bottle to cool down. Also the caps will not stay on your head and will almost come off on stage while you are receiving your diploma (note to self: bobby pin the cap down at college graduation). Their were also awesome references to Hogwarts, fun field trips to a camp and amusement parks, food fights, and streakers (yes, my school is notorious for them, please don't ask) during peoples speeches. Finally, I love how my class cheered the loudest for a kid who normally is in a wheel chair and is developmentally delayed when he walked across the stage. I have never been more proud of my class then I was at that moment. So all in all I think it was a good way to end my high school experience. Now onto bigger and better things (like college)!

  1. Congrats! I didn't get to be hot and uncomfortable for mine because we had to have it inside-- but I'd had to play in the band for all the outside ones before that. Ugh, try sitting around in a heavy polyester suit, basically. Terrible.
