Graduation (The Actual Thing)

Last night was awesome. The only part about the graduation ceremony that I didn’t like was having to speak. But I got it over with, and it really wasn’t too bad. But some great things were said about our class and also about myself in particular, which definitely gave me a big grin on my face. I was smiling because I knew that they actually meant what they said.

I really enjoyed what both Lana and Jon had to say. What happened was that each of us in turn got our “award,” and then we spoke for a little bit. Basically the award is a Bible character that the teachers pick out as being representative of our character qualities. Lana got the Queen of Sheba award, because she’s always asking questions. She then got up and spoke about making the most of every opportunity. Jon then came up and got the Timothy award for his heart for God. He spoke about walking in the light. What really made me sit up in my seat was when he took a quote off my blog.

So what does a graduating student have to say? Obviously not much. I could write a book on just the things I’m feeling right now, but it’d probably have a lot of repetition in it. Have you ever had that feeling where you just have to tell someone what keeps running around in your head? Where you’re just so excited that you have to yell and scream and dance around with someone or else you’ll explode? Yeah, that’s what I’m feeling right now. I got out of the Parenting exam and went straight over to Lana. I said, “We’re done! Holy crap! How does it feel to have finished your very last high school exam?” It’s so strange. I don’t even know how to describe how I’m feeling right now. It’s mostly excitement mixed in with a bit of nervousness…Continue Reading
