Congratulations, Class of 2006!!!
I went to graduation because I'm a sentimental mofo. It was strange. Watching these kiddoes that I've seen since they were freshman walk the stage cemented the fact that I myself have already done that; I'm already grown up and past that. It was all such a blur a year ago that I didn't even realize it was really real until Mr. Marty started to play 'Pomp and Circumstance' - for the class of 2006, not me. Yeah, even after a year of full time college and part time work. Has anyone else noticed that? Maybe its just me. Lots of fellow C/O 05-ers were there as well. Its not even funny how many of us are at Northwest Vista or UTSA.
In any case, since this community seems so dead, I wanted to be the first to congratulate you guys. You all should be so proud; I hope you've enjoyed these past weeks and months and years. You've earned ever fiber of those diplomas in your hands. I remember some c/o 04-ers telling me how they came to our graduation because we were "their fish" and I figured I'd do the same. I only had six or seven actual friends walk the stage tonight, but it was amazing how each face was still familiar. Best of luck, guys. Whatever you do, I'm sure everything will be wonderful :D
