I’m officially a high school graduate!
I feel weird. Whenever big, emotional events happen in my life, I find myself kind of detaching myself from the situation. Probably because I’m usually pretty reluctant to share my feelings with people. So, while everyone was crying at graduation, I was completely dry-eyed for basically the entire evening.
It just didn’t feel like graduation. I didn’t get to stay long afterward, because I decided to go out to eat with my mom and brothers and nieces instead of partying with my friends. To be honest, I didn’t want to hurt any of my friends’ feelings by choosing one party over the other. Friend drama as usual.
So now I’m sitting at home by myself, listening to The Proclaimers and tumblin’ while my mom and brothers are at the casino.
I’m such a party animal.
BUT my speech was apparently really good; a lot of strangers came up to me afterward to tell me it was good, and I didn’t stutter or anything, and the audience actually laughed a few times, so I’ll count it as a success. Plus I didn’t puke or faint or anything so that’s awesome.
I guess that’s it, then. Now on to a summer of working and making money for LEAKYCON. Bring it.
