Does My Graduation Rant P*ss You Off?
Graduation is such a special time. A time of achievement. A time of friends and proud, proud family. 12 amazing years of perseverance, dedication and fun. It really is the best time of your life. Congratulations to all of this year's Grads! When someone asks what year you graduated, you will proudly say, "2014!"
That being said...you don't graduate from preschool.
You don't graduate from 1st grade.
You just move to the next grade. Who can't pass first grade, for f***'s sake? You don't graduate 5th grade, or 9th, or 11th. Seriously, you just move to the next, working toward...you guessed it, "graduation."
You graduate after successfully completing your senior year, which by the way is 12th, and depending on a 2, 4, 6 or 8 year college program, you graduate appropriately. You don't graduate college after the first year.
You don't even graduate Candy Crush on the first level. That's why it's called the first level.
Let's stop treating expectation like it's some major achievement.
Today's real Graduates deserve at least that. Class of 2014...I'm counting on you!
