I went to my friend's graduation. It was awkward, sitting through such a formal occasion, thinking that the entire glorification of graduation was silly but feeling as if I was the only one there who thought so. Funnily, the guest speaker was one of the options we had for our guest speaker - the schools must get the same catalog. An overly-sentimental class song followed.

All that criticism aside, I still am going to mine - involuntarily and regrettably, granted, but am. I'm too misanthropic to really take graduation seriously, and too withdrawn to handle the obligatory social that ensues. I'm probably wrong in being so.
