Do you remember how you felt when you graduated from high school?
Like it was the end of an era? Happy? Sad?
I'm sure it was a fantastic time, but I wasn't there for the ceremony. I was already 4 months into my military service. Therefore, I suppose it was the end of one era overlapping with the beginning of another. I was just glad to be out of there.
No, quite honestly..........I do not.
Looking back, I expect, that I would have felt liberated.
But, I know, vividly, how I felt when my first child did!
Yes. "GET ME OUT OF HERE! I HATE DOING THESE DINNERS, SPEECHES, AND CRAP!" It was upsetting. I was happy to see high-school go since nothing happened in it. Though I was nervous as could be because I wanted something better but had no clue what to do.
I was very happy to graduate. I think graduating college was more sad, because there was the fact that I was completely out of school for the first time in over 15 years.
Yes that's one of the great moments in my life. I'm very happy and excited it was a milestone and it can only happen once in a lifetime.
