“Graduation Day”
As the beautiful sky happily accompany sunrays, that shined down on the entrance of the field house where the ceremony of my graduation took place. Someone above must have known it was my graduation day and blessed me with a beautiful day. I was so excited, that the night before the graduation I couldn’t sleep at all. I tossed and turned all night, thinking about the graduation and if he’d even show up. I waited for this moment for four long years and I will make the best of it.
The entrance of the field house was filled with students, families, and school officials and conversation was excitedly exchange from one friend to another. I wondered around the place looking for my friends who are already laughing excitedly with each other. After searching through the crowd of people, I finally found them. I sneaked on them and suddenly without warning I tapped on one of my friends shoulder and yelled out “HEY.” She jumped as if the earthquake had occurred. She turned around and said, “You scare the hell out of me.” We were all laughing and the conversation began once more. “So what do we do afterward?” Janel said. We started to discuss whether we went out to eat later or we go our separate ways. My friend Delcarmen asked me, “What do you think? Where should we go after?” Janel looks at me and says “My family planned to go out and celebrate. Maybe we can meet and hangout later.” Delcarmen looks at me and asks, “Do you have any plan after this? If not, we should go out and celebrate, what do you think?” “My family wants to celebrate tonight as well. I’ll call you later and maybe we could go out or something.” I said. Del looks at the both of us and says, “We’ll talk about it later. We better get inside before the ceremony starts.”
As minutes pass by my anxiety begins to hit critical mass. Thousands of screaming families here in attendance to celebrate a moment of accomplishment with their newly graduates. Cheering, screaming, and crying create a sort of
