Graduation? I’m past that.

Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent.
~Carl Sandberg

I’m getting my Associate Degree tomorrow, but I’m missing the ceremony for a meeting. The college wanted to deck me out in
ostentatious cords and lanyards, so I don’t regret my absence. I’ll get my diploma in the mail by Friday.

I don’t understand their obsession with ceremony. I have the credit hours and the GPA; I’ll have the piece of paper, so why should I be concerned with walking on stage? I’ve been on that stage before. I’ve met and interviewed my college president. I haven’t done the two combined, but it doesn’t seem too incredible.

The next stage of college starts in five weeks. I’ll be attending a decent university in the D.C. area, studying international economics under some fantastic professors. People keep asking me if I’m going to miss my old college. It’s a silly question.

To quote the last movie I watched (Iron Man): “I’ve been called many things. Nostalgic is not one of them.”
