Getting to Graduate Tomorrow

And I can honestly say that I've very excited and also nervous about graduating. It's one of the largest milestones in life that I'm going through and I'm not sure how I feel about it 100%. I mean, I'm happy that I get to graduate because it gets me one step closer to starting college, getting a degree, and eventually starting on my career, but I'm not sure which emotion I really want to display. If anything I know for a fact that I'm excited about college in August! It's not too far from home and I completely adore the campus and the environment! Next month I get to find out what dorm I'm going to be assigned and who my roommate will be. The bad thing about it all....having to get shots...and I really don't like needles. :'( But other than that, I'm happy about finally graduating high school tomorrow. :D

Congratulation!! I remember my graduation, and graduation practice was awful it was so hot outside it made everyone miserable. Almost everyone had a pool party or went to a pool party after practice the last day because it was nearly 100 degrees out. I just graduated last year!

Thank you~! I had my first practice in the gymnasium earlier today and it was fairly uncomfortable. Nobody wanted to pay attention, we practiced sitting and standing multiple times, and had to repeat the entire ceremony again. Afterwards we had our senior class photo and it was horrible.. The school lacks in communication so we didn't know what we were supposed to wear, how to stand, etc. 100 degrees?! I would melt if that happened.. If might rain at my graduation tomorrow. :'D And congratulations on graduating last year!

Ours happened around 8pm, so it was fairly dark outside. :) Thankfully it didn't rain that night either or else my heels would have gotten stuck in the mud.

I have received my Bachelor of Arts for English Literature and Language. I go in for the ceremony on June 10th. I am so happy that I have received my degree because that now means that I am one step closer towards my goal.

Hello~! Thank you so very much! I really do enjoying making new friends, so I know that part will be a blast when I attend college in August. The thought of being in the real world was a little scary at first...but I feel I will be just fine as long as I continue to stay on track of things. :)

Congratulations! It is really one of the biggest milestones of being a student. Getting nervous is normal because you are anxious of what's coming next. You may have a lot of things in your mind right now, but you don't have to hurry, everything will settle itself in time. Good Luck with your college life.

Thank you! :D I really nervous before we all had to walk down to the stadium, but we prayed as a class before going down there and it helped me relax. And you're right, I do have a lot of things running though my mind at the moment, especially a summer job..but I plan on having a little fun this summer as well. :) Thank you for your words of advice, I really appreciate it~!

Thank you for saying that. I'm trying not to worry about university life, so I'm hoping by the time I meet my roommate and go back to the campus I will be fine. :)

Congratulations that you are graduating, your parent are very proud of you that you are graduating. About the shot just don't think of it or you can just think that its just a bite of an ant or a pinch of your mom using her nails. Just enjoy your graduation and good luck about the shot that you will be getting.

Thank you! Both of my parents were really proud me and I was extra proud of myself as well. I really had a blast at graduation, especially the flash mob we had at the end! :) I try not to think about shots, but my mind seems to unfortunately wonder back to it just before it happens...

Congrats on graduating high school. I am graduating next month with my First Master's Degree in Early Childhood Studies and working on my second Master's in Educaton and Managment (this will allow me to open my own Pre-school) and cannot wait until I am able to find work in my field. Right now it has been hard because Randy has a foot condition and needs extra help and care. I know when I gradiated high school I was happy and sad, happy because I reached a goal and sad because I would miss my friends. I wish you the best of luck in college.

Thank you~! Awww congratulations to you as well! I'm happy to hear that you are getting your Master's degree! That's exactly how I feel.. I'm fairly happy and yet I'm fairly sad about leaving all of my friends.. Especially all of my friend that are underclassmen. Thank you for saying that, and I pray that Randy's foot condition gets better. :)
