So, I feel kinda hollow and disappointed because I’ve realized the DVD of my graduation isn’t being sold anywhere (not surprising, it’s been almost a year, though my mom has insisted she’ll find and buy it eventually) and the YouTube channel that has almost every graduation from my county is missing my school.
The speeches were beautiful and made me cry, but I don’t remember what they were about.
If I had know we were gonna sit for the first part, I would’ve recorded what I wanted in my phone, but no. I left my phone in my bra under my robe for the whole thing because I didn’t know when we were about to go up.
I go to school for 14.5 years and all I get is social awkwardness, stress, a piece of paper with my name on it, smeared makeup, and a graduation robe that was missing my school’s patch? School’s a fucking ripoff.
Now I’m in college, actually gonna make friends and go to events and take pictures, and become an adult independent of my family, and I’m now doing everything from home because of COVID-19.
There’s also the fact that I could’ve Googled stuff for free instead of paying hundreds of dollars for classes I’m not even going to. My semester-long bus pass, which was $104, is practically collecting dust.
School is a joke and so is my life.
