Can be either the greatest moment or the saddest. I thought it would be the greatest but looking back I would give up everything just for one day back in school. Crushes, unfairness, homework, love, friends, idiot teachers, recess, lunch, all that stuff. I miss it all. I find it strange to be looking back right now on this. But I guess the saying they say is true. "You never knew how much fun being a kid really was until your older."
I miss school. There said it.
The best/worst thing for a high-schooler to experience before they take their leap into the real world. A last chance for friends/crushes/acquaintances/etc. to get together for the last time, and, hopefully, get phone numbers/e-mail addresses/Myspaces to talk to each other after they all leave high school.
At graduation, I tried to kiss my than girlfriend, she moved away from the kiss, and told me that she was cheating on me someone else. She than proceeded to graduate while my dad took a picture of us standing together with our diploma covers. Needless to say, my graduation sucked ass. Also, don't throw your caps when you graduate. I did, and got back one without a graduating class pin.
This is the day you leave high school with a diploma, and many gaping wounds and/or emotional pain/catharsis.
Wow, Tom! Congratulations on graduating from high school, isn't that a big relief?
Tom: Well, this wound from AP Chemistry will never go away, and I feel like crying like a little girl, knowing I don't have to put up with those fucking losers and that history teacher for the rest of my life *cries*
Then comes college, when you become a freshman all over again, CONGRATS!
The supreme ability to tolerate 12 years of school with out putting a gun in your mouth, to enter the real world and have someone else put a gun in your mouth for you.
Guy: Dude, we did it. We survived till graduation!
Guy2: Yea, Joe got close tho, only 2 months short.
Guy; Thats pretty good i guess.
The day you realize you just spent 13 years of your life to walk across a stage wearing a funny looking hat to get a piece of paper.
What!?! I worked the equivilent of a full time job for 13 years for a piece of paper that basically means I didn't fall asleep in class too much! There goes 13 years of my life that i'll never get back. What's the point of graduation anyway?
