It's Graduation, Man! pt. 1

It's been two days since i last went to school, and i have a good reason. I decided to stop going, and just leave the torture and triumph of this year behind me. Also, it was over, but the school year didn't give up without a fight.

This epic battle between the forces of good and the forces of awesome, the final showdown between boredom and nervous laughter, and the brutal struggle for a place atop the bloodstained alter of disinterest and heatstroke, graduation is hard to define, and even harder to undergo. To put it simply, it was a sequence of long, agonizingly boring events, punctuated by opportunities for extreme catastrophic failure in front off all of our family and friends, much like a car wash.

After 3 or so hours of valiantly defending our last refuges of lingering sanity against the endless waves of boredom zombies, we realized it wasn't all that bad. I realized that the wrinkles in my pants distorted my shadow so it looked like i grew an extra finger, someone in the audience yelled out "Party Like a Rockstar!" a few times, and fellow AKOKK blogger K-Rizzle gave an inspiring speech about the values of education and understanding in today's world. That, and the incredibly awesome dance party that followed, were a fitting conclusion to the school year, and ultimately, made the summer far more worthwhile.
