Oh boy...where to start...heheheh...
So yeah, as many of you might have noticed, I took a leave of absence for God knows how long. I'm not gonna bother explaining why, but I felt like I had to come back to tell you guys some totally awesome and badass news.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I am pleased to announce that I have officially GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL!!!! That's right, and with a darn good diploma too! "Advanced Regents Diploma, Honors", as the call it. Next step, college orientation at Plattsburgh, which is this coming Monday! Then next Saturday is my super, mega, ultra, graduation party EXTRAVAGANZA, or as I would like to call it, the "Jim Morrison Memorial Graduation Party." (Because it coincidentally falls on the date of Jim Morrison's death so I figured we should honor him, lol.) Then between that and the first day of college...well...I don't really know what the hell is going on, lol. Maybe I'll get a job, who knows.
The graduation ceremony was something else. As Class President, I played a pivotal role in the ceremony. First thing's first, after the school band played the national anthem, I had the duty of walking up onto the stage, stand behind the podium, and recite the Pledge of Allegiance in front of hundreds of people. (I guess I did a good job, my mom said I sounded just like President Obama...awesome.) Anyways, after we all received our diplomas, we had to do that old tradition where we would turn the tassel on our cap from the left side to the right, with me, the class president, coordinating the event. So I stood up, faced my class, and rose my hands up like Emperor Palpatine did in Episode III. ("In order to ensure safe and secure...surefire!") Then I turned my tassel over, everyone in my class copied my moves. I felt like an instrument of humanity itself! So then I proceeded to lead my fellow classmates out of the building.
So there you have it, oh! And my field trip to New York City, Washington DC, and Gettysburg was a blast! Except for the fact that when you pack over 50 students in a bus like sardines for 5 days around the whole place, the drama ensues. (Not to mention stomach illnesses which I suffered from shortly after the trip!) But yeah, it was totally awesome. It felt weird seeing all of those landmarks in real life. But I think the best part was was seeing The Lion King Broadway show. That had to be the most amazing thing I have ever seen in my life. It was truly phenomenal.
So there you have it, I've had a hectic couple of months during my leave of absence. I don't know if I'll be sticking around a lot here on the Bay forums. I'm trying to avoid as much TF3 news as possible so the movie doesn't get spoiled for me like TF2 was.
