As a child I looked upon the graduates of the year as being to accomplished and grown up. Now being one of them I can't say that I feel the same way. I am, compared to a lot of other high school graduates of this year, pretty far along since I did running start for the past 2 years. But it doesnt feel like I finished anything becuase I wasnt even at my high school for those whole 2 years.
Most graduation ceremonies begin with complete bordom and end with a splash of "kill me before I die of extreme entertainment depravation" but mine was actually quite enjoyable. Even my family had no trouble staying awake; which can't be said for my brothers graduation. Man oh man was that boring! I dont even remember any of it, except for the part where I screemed for him. I think I blocked it out of my memory because it was just too painful. But never the less its considered a milestone in ones life. Although I wouldnt consider it one.
I am, by nature, a very picky person. And while planning my graduation party I made it quite clear that I didnt want certain things like tubs of chili. I wanted class and chili just doesnt apply to that theme. I was then informed that this wasnt actually MY party, but my parents party because they endured the 18 back-breaking years of raising me. Ha ha, very funny dad. But I should mention that this comment didnt stop me from giving my ever-so-wonderful ideas.
All in all my party was a complete success! So many of the guests told me. I myself was quite pleased with how it all turned out, well done mom! You have proved you decorating skills.....then again I did pick all the decorations, and said where they would go. But still, good job ;)!
One ending has found me, and another beginning as well. Lets hope this life proves to be a good one.
