LEVEL UP TO ➠ COLLEGE GRADUATE!
Listening to “50 min Boiler Room Mix” by SBTRKT ♫
One word for last week: hectic.
Tuesday was the Donor Show, where the donors of the school got a preview of the senior show, and everyone got all classy and professional. That was aiight, somewhat underwhelming, free food was really good, one glass of wine made me feel better, etc. Wednesday into Thursday was a nice break though - I went to a party/hangout/sleepover at a friend's house (a friend aka Kurt, whose art you should check out). Bonfire, vidya gaming, card gaming, and survival wolf movie. Yep.
Friday was the big night, the senior show! It was overwhelming how many "congratulations", "good luck"s, "good job"s, and other many lovely comments I received! I didn't sell all the books I made, but I did sell 5! Everyone did such a good job! There aren't enough exclamation points for how happy this event made me feel! After that I went out to a bar with friends (it was cold! it was outdoors!!), and I went dancing with other friends (first time in a club-y setting, wow!) until roughly 2 AM (I didn't know it was 2 AM.)
And Saturday morning was graduation. It was surreal seeing everyone in their gowns, goodness gracious. Standing in two lines was surreal! Walking into the auditorium with everyone facing us and clapping was surreal! I was trying to hold back tears the entire time. It all finally hit me that morning: I'm going to graduate. When I stepped outside, I cried. I saw other friends crying. I took pictures with family. I took pictures with friends.
My mind is slowly accepting this as a fact. And slowly accepting the fact of "Oh hey, this isn't really a summer vacation - welcome to life outside of school." Bear with me as I get my bearings in check here, for I am recuperating from the last few (chaotic) weeks!
