It's finally over!
It wasn't as bad as High School Graduation. Mainly cuz I didn't have a stupid ex-bow to ruin it. But it was shorter with not so many graduates an' all that jazz. It was kinda...weird mixing school with religion. Maybe it's just been a long time since I've mixed them.
Jackson was there! He stayed the whole time and first saw me before any of my family. He gave me a tattered envelope and inside was the tattered card with 10 bucks in it. Awww. He's so nice.
Ya know its kinda depressing to graduate now, during this lil' recession/depression our country is in. The speakers all try to uplift you and make you feel like you can do anything. Well, news flash, if the man with the doctorite and obviously a lot of experience in whatever just got laid off, how the hell is a new unexperienced perky faced graduate gonna get a good start?
Surin was sad I didn't stick around after the program...and I realized I did kinda leave fast. I took pictures in the assembly hall and then we left...
Its been weighing on my mind; I wonder if anyone else was there that was looking for me/wanted to see me. That's kinda sad. It was just set in my mind that no one would come to my Graduation so no need to stick around with strangers. I hope ppl from Logan didn't come. That would be sad. Make me sad. I could name my lil' fan club on one hand, all family. Oh well. We'll all survive. I think.
I didn't go to the reception at the school afterwards either. Maybe ppl went there looking fer me? I dunno. I missed the "Class photo" and the socializing. HA! I wish it were easier to separate myself from this school. Just graduate and move away, never look back. But noo I'll still be here staring at the building everytime I pass for some unknown reason.
We all stuffed in Grandmas car and went to Grandmas. I changed and we called Claine and the boys and we all headed up to Fire House Pizza! Mwhahahah spoiled! Applebeer, Cordon bleu, graduated, and family. Can't get better right? Whee! We spent $100 bucks there. With Patsy, Jed, Rachel, Josh, Claine, Brax, Cole, Garth (rent a kid), Grandma, Renee, Dad, Mom, and Me. 13 of us. My pizza was the first to go, of course.
Dinner was fine except for Claine sitting across from me. I don't know if he's just been with screaming kids all day, but he just would NOT stop with the whole 'judging'/making-ppl-feel-stupid thing that he and Min does so well. It got really annoying. Ya know when you get annoyed with someone you start ignoring them and pretending they didn't say anything? Yeah.
I made the comment that teenagers rule the FireHouse resturant and I think it's really cool and maybe the rest of the world should be like that. Claines like "Why? Yer not a teenager anymore. Far from it... you can't rule anything blah blah" I'm like "this doesn't have anything to do with me. I'm just sayin its kinda cool to have teenagers take over this resturant" Ugh. I can't even explain it. But he can make a convo go like that fer for a long time. I just hate it when they do that.
I was glad Min wasn't there to join in with him. Min didn't even wanna go to my graduation so I said she wasn't invited to my pizza party (she had to work). Everyone else got off work so they could be there!
Enough of that venting.
Dood! Food! Stuffed.
After all that walking, sitting, listening, picture taking, driving, and stuffing face, we all went our separate ways. I hate how the first thing Dad says, when a family activity gives a 'hint' that its over, "we gotta go home now. everyone get yer things and be in the car in 5" (cuz he knows it'll take 15 to 30 minutes in reality)
So we were all around the table and Dad announces they're leaving. sigh. Gives ya that sinking feeling like "ah, no, dont go! I didnt spend enough time with you".
Anyway, Mom&Dad and Garth went back to Logan. Jed&Patsys fam went like 5 miles back to Bountiful. And Grandma, Renee, and I went back home to SLC. It just felt so...weird... everyone there gabbering one minute and then all gone in separate ways the next.
Everyone is gone. Something that has been planned fer 5 months and it all happened so quick. Nothing too special I guess. Nothing really changed. I'm graduated and now laying in bed wondering what to do the rest of the night. The same thing I usually do on weeknights?
