    Graduation is in my WAY
    I finished school last Friday. I don't understand why people keep asking me if I'm excited. If I'm proud of myself. Why? I was last Thursday.

    I don't want to go on Friday. Why do I have to go back to that world? I already left. I handed in my exams. I haven't seen those people in over a week. I don't have time for graduation. My daughter is turning 9. My nephew was just born. I have a Bar Review class to start, I have dinner plans with friends. My 11 year old is trying to educate me on the philosophy of Plato. Why do I have to give 2 hours to sitting a stage? Why?

    I think it's going to be nothing but emotionally exhausting -- in the same vein as that birthday party I have to do next weekend. I *hate* doing birthday parties. I'm just not far enough on the Extroverted side of the scale to like bday parties. I am just enough extroverted to enjoy talking. A lot. To 2 or 3 people at a time - MAX.

    Update: Oh yeah, and just to make graduation even SUCKIER - it's gonna be 92. NINETY-TWO!!! I am not a heat-person. I am a 62 kinda person. Perhaps, if I'm in a good mood, a 72 kinda person. 92? Hello? You just skipped an entire .... set of 10s. Or something.

      I am usually pretty bah humbug about graduation, but my graduation from law school a few weeks ago was actually pretty amazing. Hey, lots of the parents in my class walked across the stage with their kids. You could walk with E and J if you want - would they like that? I thought it was so cool when they did that, I almost wanted to borrow a kid just for the walk across the stage, but then I'd have someone else's kids in my graduation photo, so I decided against it.

      Sorry, no sympathy here - it was 102 for graduation - 2 weeks ago. :-)
