The Friday Five for April 19, 2019

April is half over and we are tumbling toward May and soon it will be the season of graduating. It seems like every class has a graduation now, so how about you

1. Did you enjoy your senior year of high school?

2. Did you have a senior trip (high school) and were you able to go on it.

3. Was graduating (from either high school or college/university) a big thing with your family or just another day?

4. What were you looking forward to the most after graduating from either high school or college/university?

5. Knowing what you know now, what advice would you give your graduating self?

1. I did, with the possible exception of Advanced Chemistry. I was heavily into drama and it was a great time of discovering a brand new world for me.

2. Our school didn't do stuff like that. It was labeled as a progressive school and did a lot of odd things, like no dances and no senior trips. Since I was into neither at that point, it was okay.

3. When I graduated from high school, my folks threw me a big party. When I graduated from college the first time, TBG put Pomp and Circumstances on the turntable and presented me with my diploma (I graduated in the winter semester - no ceremony). The second time, I went the whole route, ceremony robes, rings, the whole nine yards and afterwards, we went to a masquerade ball and then a performance of "Phantom of the Opera" with him and a good friend. Yeah, it was a party. :D

4. Honestly, not having assignments due all the time or spending the weekend studying or running flash cards. I worked very hard to maintain my GPA and it was a relief to be done with it.

5. I would have told myself to cut me some slack. Good grads are nice, but they don't mean squat in the real world. Instead I would have stressed getting what real life experience you could from each class as that will be of more help to you than knowing the Battle of Hastings was 1066...
