I figured out what Graduation is. Pretty sure.
Graduation. Joy. Caps and gowns of an awfully atrocious color. I am pretty sure whoever chose these had a sick sense of humor.
Really annoying and pointless meetings. Lots of them. I’m serious. There are at least ten different things I could go to, and another dozen things I am required to go to before graduating.
Amazingly busy yet amazingly bored. I feel like there are a zillion things I should be doing at all times, but at the same time, I am sooo bored! Like, I just want to go out and do something crazy, but I have nothing to do! Ack.
Days are numbered until you leave- (16 counting weekends!!)- yet it still seems so far.
Unfortunate casualties. There are a handful of people who aren’t even going to graduate this year because they were slackers and decided not to do any of the lame requirements. So dumb. I mean, it isn’t like they haven’t had all year, and this is basically just throwing the last 4 years of highschool down the drain. come on people. don’t be dumb.
A fine line. The principle went off on a hugely long lecture about how pranks would not be tolerated, and that if the kids paint that one hill that they always paint every year, they wouldn’t hesitate to arrest them. Careful, kids. don’t blow it all away by being stupid so close to graduation. So glad I am smart and wouldn’t do something like that.
Teehee. You over hear some weirddd conversations in the hallways this time of year… *cough*
I just don’t understand most of the hype, I have to admit. I feel like I’m going to die or something. Everyone getting teared up and stuff. My life isn’t over, i am just leaving high school, thanks goodness, and if that was ‘life,’ wow. That’s reallllly sad.
“Oh, why me?”
Nothing I am looking forward to more than getting out of here. Well there are a couple other things I am looking forward to happening, but this is pretty much up there on that list. I daresay tied for first. possibly second. Anyway. it is up there.
Graduation, at it’s finest. Oh, I’m sure it will get better, be fine, and I’ll be glad for everything, but right now it is just seeming kind of lame.
