Impressions of Graduation


I’M GRADUATED!!!

*ahem*

So today I’ve been up and running about since 7 AM. Doing graduation stuff. Because I am now an adult with a degree. And a technical writing certificate.

The general convocation was boring, but what I expected. Except for the part where we had to walk down halls, stairs, and a path lined with professors. We were fairly certain it was a psychological experiment. “Find your way through the rat maze, then you can have your degree.” XD It was nice, just boring. And far too early. Really, the only reason I went is because they promised us a shiny metal for coming to the ceremony. It looks very nice.

Then I had four hours to kill between that and my college’s graduation. Killed time with the ‘rents, went out to eat at a steak house… Then we went back to the school. I was hustled off into a back room of the building where they were assembling and alphabetizing the grads. God, it got hot in there. But then they gave us streamers. Streamers! That was fun. They tried to manage a full room of artistic graduates with streamers! My roommate had wanted to steal my robes to play Harry Potter. I had to send her a text that I had a wand. (The streamers were attached to a small plastic wand.)

Then, once everything was settled, they sent us on in to the funnest music EVER. We danced across the stage waving the streamers about. Mwa ha ha, fun!  The program was full of things like singing, and performing, and the performing arts students went across the stage dancing or on roller skates. When I got to walk the stage to get my diploma cover, I hugged each and every one of the professors that made an incredible difference in my life. I’ll forever be grateful to them.

I’m sorry, this post is a little ADD. I’ve been running around for far too long.

Anyways, the point is, anyone who’s ever said graduations were boring has never been to an arts and humanities graduation. That was the most fun I have ever had. It was the party we deserved as graduates. Oh, I’d go to another one in a heartbeat.

Today was everything I could have hoped it could be. I’m so very glad to be graduated. I’m already starting to miss it. I’ll go back to school for my Masters before I turn 30.

Now I just need to find a job… Hmmm….

In any case, I’m going to ignore the stress of that for now and go back to dancing happily. Enjoy your weekend, everyone.
