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...
