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

Aww I went tonight too!!! And I totally felt the same way. I took another early graduate with me, so for us it was even crazier... it was like we were supposed to be wtih them, but at the same time we were so happy we weren't.

I thought it was really cool that they put you guy's names in the program, under "Summer 2005 Graduates".

Yeah it was. I think we're the biggest group of early grads that they have ever had. Ms. Willstrop sat with us yesterday and she filled us in on quite a bit of HC information students really don't know. Sounds like only one Early Graduate this year, and that is Hanna.
