Isn't it pretty?

Graduation

I think most people enjoy their graduations, look forward to them, have a party and are filled with cheer. But for me, it is turning quite bittersweet and stressful. I kind of wish it could be a total non-event. I am very proud of myself that I have worked extremely hard to get to this point. I have an excellent GPA, more importantly I have learned a LOT, and while it was difficult working full-time while going to school, I did enjoy it. But I'm going to miss it. I'm going to miss my school and friends that I have become so comfortable with. The classes and professors that I have gotten to know well. I want to keep in touch with those I have met, but I am also realistic and feel like it's not going to last, which will be sad. And graduation itself is turning into such a pain. Making all the arrangements, scheduling everything, making phone calls, all the hassles that I feel I shouldn't have to worry about. I should just be enjoying my accomplishment. And it hurts a bit that I see my fellow graduates clamoring for extra tickets to graduation, and I was giving my extra tickets away, because who wants to sit through a boring graduation anyway? No one that I know. Sorry for the whine, just a bit stressed out. Hopefully next week, with degree in hand, robe retired, and parents back home, things will be better.
