Welcome to my humble abode! I have no idea how to use this thing, but hopefully I'll figure it out soon enough. >_>
Title: So, I graduated today... Posted: June 14, 2008 (11:23 PM)
I had to be on campus by 7:45 AM at the latest. That means I was up since about five AM. Had to register and stand in a line for nearly two hours, did the processional, listened to the speeches, and walked across the stage. While both my folks are usually way too busy to see me, they at least dropped in to see me walk. They both left on their respective trips before the ceremonies were over. My grandmother, aunt, and uncle were there as well, so at least I had some support.
The ceremony finished at noon, just before the temperature started to get unbearable. I rode with my relatives to this nifty little seafood place down at the marina. After a brief stop at home to change clothes, I went with my relatives to my cousin's house for his graudation party. I spent the afternoon giving him advice for college (he's starting in two months) and basically told him what he needed to do between now and the Fall. Afterwards, we picked up a Cold Stone Creamery ice cream cake (Oreos FTW) and went out to dinner for a few hours. Then we headed back to my house for dessert and some presents. I got a cool little keychain with my initials and graduation date etched into it, a badass red and white graduation lei, an autographed copy of Halo: Contact Harvest (Joseph Staten apparently knows my aunt), and a book of quotes from plays and poems.
Basically, I've been up since five AM and I'm only just now sitting down and relaxing. Now I know how Jack Bauer feels. ._. As for what tomorrow and the rest of my future will bring...I don't know. I never thought I'd make it this far; Hell, I thought I'd be dead by now. I've thrived in the academic setting, paid my entire tuition out of my own pocket, and I've worked damned hard to get to this point. What am I going to do now?
...Guess I'll go write.
