School’s out… forever?

So after 12 years of waiting for this to come, school is finally over. But the thing is that it doesn’t feel like it’s over. I feel like I’ll be right back in school in a couple of weeks and this is just a vacation. It’s surreal.

All this grad stuff – banquet, commencement, safegrad – took no time at all to get through… I always felt like grad would be this huge momentous thing in my life and it in a lot of ways it was. But it all went by so fast and it feels like I didn’t even really get to experience it all.

It’s sad that school is finally over. You spend so much time getting used to the schedule and making friends and then BAM it’s all over. There are so many people that I never got the chance to meet and so many people that I wanted to get to know better. School was the place to do all that stuff and now that it’s over, the opportunity is gone. /sigh

Such a bittersweet feeling.

Grad Date Dance

Sooooooooo grad is next week… holy balls.

I’m excited!!!
but there’s one thing that’s kind of giving me the blues…

Grad Date Dance

So the beginning of the dance part of banquet starts off with a parent/grad dance (which I totally understand) and then a dance for the grads who have dates…
HOW COME THEY GET THEIR OWN DANCE?!

Are the people without dates supposed to just sit there and watch all the happy couples? Pretty sure I don’t want to have my face rubbed in the fact that all those people managed to get dates and I DIDN’T fts!! It’s like everyone who planned this dance thing all had dates and they wanted to flaunt it in the lesser people’s faces… thank you, assholes! Because I didn’t already feel lame enough.

I don’t see a singles’ dance in the itinerary… equality please! I mean, throw the single people a friggen bone. We deserve a chance to find some sort of other person! Usher told me that the DJ gets people falling in love, so it’s entirely plausible. Usher’s word is law.

Grad Banquet Blues

Grad is coming up fast and I’ve got quite the dilemma on my hands. I am debating whether I should go to the grad banquet or not. I mean, if you think about it, it’s just an overpriced, overhyped, dinner and dance.

Dresses are at least $300. And it’s not like grad dresses are something that you can wear more than once. They’re like a one time use object that you pay a ton of money for. There is so much other stuff that I could buy with that money. Stuff that I would actually use and continue to use. As opposed to a dress that I would wear for what? 6 hours? And it would spend the rest of it’s life trapped in a closet or hanging on the racks of a thrift store.

Then, after you’ve bought you expensive dress, you need shoes, hair, makeup, a limo, flowers, gifts… All this shit. Plus, tickets to eat there each cost $65. So if you’ve got a lot of family members, then that’s another shitload of money that’s thrown down a drain.

Moreover, I only talk to maybe 6 people at my school. They’d probably spend the night busy with their families and me with mine. But it’d be hard to talk to them in the giant crush of people in the room. A sweaty, noisy, potentially smelly crush of people. Ew.

This banquet is really just another day. A ridiculously overpriced day. Honestly, I think that I would be happier staying at home instead of going. Plus, I wouldn’t really regret going because it’s not like anything really happens. You take pictures, you eat, you go get wasted in some field, you throw up the $65 worth of food… Not exactly my idea of a fun night.

Geh. I know I’ll have to make a decision about going soon… I just don’t want to~
