So what if I succumbed to the pressure of the blog? I have funny cousins, and they keep me entertained, so I decided to join them. I've always wanted to be like my cousins. Besides, they're rich. The think about blogs though, is I just hate the name blog. I think I'd like to call my blog a glob.
Back in 1997, I was pretty awesome. I was cool and most likely tan. Besides, I was graduating from high school. I was so awesome sitting in those UVSC bleachers waiting for my name to be called! You were most likely hot stuff when you graduated from high school also. Remember?
I started thinking over the last eight years since I was such hot stuff in a graduation gown (unfortunately, mine was a little short, which made being hot stuff a little more challenging) about high school graduation. Every spring as I have passed the marriott center late in May, I have gained insight about high school graduation. Truly, it isn't awesome.
I've decided rather than celebrate those who graduate from high school, we should shoot fireworks directly at those who didn't graduate from high school. Think about it. You probably didn't work especially hard to graduate. You probably went to class and did some work. That work probably wasn't that difficult. If you decided to take AP classes, you were either especially smart or really stupid, so that doesn't count as difficult either. So, really, everyone should just graduate. Nobody needs to hear a boring "this isn't the end, this is only the beginning of the rest of our lives" speech. And think of the time we could spare if only we didn't have to name every person that graduates! We could spend all of the time shooting fireworks while naming those that didn't graduate! What a celebration. Andrew Johnson----BOOM BOOM!!! Sarah Miller---BOOOM BOOM--Sorry Sarah, I was aiming at your knees! Laughter could take over those nerdy tears about leaving friends.
I'm the type of person who feels guily really easily. So now that I've written this glob, I am feeling guilty about hurting all of the 'Andrew Johnson's' feelings out there. I'm sorry Andrews, this is only a glob. I'm sure you have other qualities rather than being able to graduate. I KNOW you have a special spirt Andrew(s). You're probably really tan. That is sweet. I wish I was tan.
