To Go or Not to Go?

 Well my college graduation ceremony is coming up soon and I’m debating whether or not to go and again debating whether or not if I DO go, if I should invite anyone.

If you know anything about me at all you know that I don’t like to make a big deal out of anything “formal” that I’ve done. Birthdays, graduation, weddings, babies.. These are things that everyone does so why should anyone but me make a big deal about it? (Thanks (X)Brent for drilling that into my head!) I figure I really don’t want to spend money on the ceremony (I’ll get my actual paper diploma in August), cap, gown, honors pin, formal invites… seems like a lot of work to me. The people I’d invite would have to sit there for how long? I’m in the B’s, so if there’s a huge class, they're gonna be there for awhile. I don’t want that! I simply look at it as “who really cares? It’s just me.”

I remember when I graduated high school, my class was 800 something, and it took 2-3hrs for everyone to complete commencement. I fell asleep on some dude’s shoulder and made him hold my portable fan on me since it was so damn hot and we wore black gowns..

However, it’s taken me almost 17 years to finish this damn degree and I want to get up there and make it count. To take my breather and give myself a bit of a pat on the back for being a stubborn cow and finishing what I started. It does make me wanna throw a party at the house, just because I can. I think I just want to have a couple of low key dinners with my family and some friends to celebrate. I certainly don’t want to forget this mini milestone in my life, nor do I want to be pretentious about it by dragging myself and others out for it..

I’m not sure how I want to handle it.. I just want to graduate!
