Graduation.
« on: June 06, 2008, 01:11:39 PM »
I am freaking out just a little bit about this. Thursday is the day I officially graduate from highschool. :|

I finished my classes weeks ago but for cyber school Thursday is our official date of graduation, and I'll be going to Harrisburg for it. They already sent me my cap and gown and stuff. It's a bit overwhelming. I'm SO not ready to grow up yet, haha. Can't I have one more year of highschool?  :D

KIDS!

Never satisfied, I swear. It seems like only yesterday you were a snot-nosed fourteen year old going on and on and on ad nauseum about how you couldn't wait to see the back of high school and be an adult.  ::)

No, you can't have one more year of high school! Now go clean your room young man!

Feel better?  ;D

Congrats on the graduation.  :-*

I gotta tell you College is way more fun than highschool.  I am so happy for you, this is indeed a milestone.  You will have many more.  Congratulations.  D

Congratulations honey, I couldn't be more proud and happy for you.

You are such a special young man to so many of us.....I just feel that you are destined to do great things with your life.

Take time to enjoy it, savor it, and take it all in......we only pass this way once.

Many hugs,

Alan   :-*

re: hijack

Andy, perhaps we only pass this way once CONSCIOUSLY would be a better statement.....I watched a show awhile back on past life investigation, through hypnosis....that might be fun.   I just KNOW I was rich in some lifetime.  I'm being taught the lesson about "how to be poor" in this one...

ok hijack over!

love you Jaser!  Congrats again.
