For the last 3 years, we've all been looking forward to graduating in New York City. It seemed so glamorous, so romantic, so thrilling! We'd wear fancy clothes and pretend we're fancy New Yorkers for an evening. It made it more special somehow, for a lot of us.
Well, screw all that, because we're graduating in Florida. Hot, sweaty, sticky Florida. Graduation has been announced. We'll be graduating at the Bank United Center in Coral Gables, Florida on June 13th, 2014. No one in my class is happy, except perhaps the people who already live in Florida. The rest of us are bitching about frizzy hair, melting makeup, sweaty clothes, and the decidedly less glamorous location taking away from our romantic, multi-year-long fantasy of New York.
I'm happy to be graduating. I'm not happy about looking shiny in all of my graduation photos.
