I’m going away this weekend so that I can graduate.

I’ve had my degree since December, but it feels empty without a ceremony…which is kind of weird I suppose. My high school class was really small so everyone knew each other. This time around it’ll be some acquaintances and a few close friends. It’s very similar to my high school graduation, except this time around there’s going to be hundreds of people I don’t know.

At first I didn’t really care about the ceremony. I thought about it more after my original decision. I live close by, it’d be a nice cadence. Why not?
