I don't know if I'm going to have a graduation party.
Since I graduated high school in 2007, this was supposed to be my graduating year, so I might feel stupid having one a year later. Also, I don't really have bunches of friends that get a long that I could invite, and there are no family members that I'm dying to see, so I might just skip it. Besides, I have 2 years of grad school left after I graduate next year, so I'd feel kind of weird having a party and then still having more school to go to.
Also, my high school graduation party was a disaster.
My mom had a thoughtful idea (who she was thinking of, though, I don't know) and wrote on the invitations instead of giving me money why don't people just bring something I could use in college.
So basically most people in my cheap-ass family showed up with sticky notes and pens. No joke. I was so pissed, at least if they brought money I could have got like $20, but those jerks got away with bringing a pack of CVS papermates (IN BLUE, ugh) to my high school graduation party. Some of the other things I got were recycled address books and mechanical pencils.
I know it's ridiculous, but I still get angry thinking about it - my mom had an okay idea but when you're dealing with cheap jerks you can't give them the benefit of the doubt.
Anyway, I'm kind of hoping I don't have one next year. Or if I do, at least I can write their invitations with their pens on their sticky notes. Too bad I didn't get any envelopes.
Would you want to have a graduation party if you were me?
