What I Did During Graduation

So I am at one of the many Texas A&M graduations and they are long. Not as long as the 1700 kids I graduated with in high school, but then again I didn’t go to my high school graduation so I don’t know how bad that many people is. So instead of sitting in shear boredom middling through my various strange thoughts alone I have decided to document the random things I as well as Bethany, and Hannah think about at graduation. So here it goes, it will be random but I can assure you it is all connected in my brain somehow. So here are the ____ thoughts I have during a graduation

  1. Here come the doctoral candidates maybe I should get my Ph D
  2. “No Hillary” on your cap, pretty clever I am surprised that it made it on the Jumbo Tron; then again its Texas A&M
  3. Let me make a sign on my computer for Kev Kev ill make it in PowerPoint
  4. I wonder if he sees the sign, he looks confused I think he sees it
  5. Dog
  6. Bethany (or should I say B-Sizzle) – it’s weird that a liberal arts student out of all colleges would have not Hilary on her hat.
  7. Finally, everyone is marched in
  8. Did they just say MC? I thought that was an inner city rap battle title for the speaker.
  9. 16 ceremonies! I wonder if they get tired of graduation ceremonies
  10. Why is she talking about astronomy this is Liberal Arts not science, you took astronomy 101 your freshman year what do you know?
  11. “We are liberal arts, the odd ball of the aggie family” yes student speaker you hit the nail on the head
  12. Was that Thunder? Let me check the radar. Yes that was thunder
  13. PI is 3.1415926535897932384626433
  14. Dang it I told myself I wasn’t going to do that
  15. Well It happened, I’m a nerd that is filled with useless knowledge like pi to the 20th I should get a hobby; like a blog. Oh…..
  16. Is that the new official seal on stage? Gross, bring back T-Star.
  17. Oh goodie board of reagent speaker, who speaks slower and with more pauses than Obama
  18. Speaker – “I was class of 71, and I was on Northgate last night.” Uh…..
  19. Speaker – “Then this morning I was walking through Northgate,” wow hitting it hard in the morning before graduation, that’s why you’re speaking so slow.
  20. Hannah – why did all the babies start crying?
  21. Yeah there are like 15 different babies crying, his speech must be that bad….
  22. Wow to the names already that was quick
  23. Hannah – “Is this where they throw their hat?” Me – …. No that’s the end
  24. What if they did all 16 ceremonies at once in Kyle Field, what would be worse the endless drone of names, or the traffic afterwards?
  25. “No selfies on the stage” *Audible Laughter* Of course they have to say that
  26. Insert Debate between Bethany, Hannah, and I
    1. Hannah – College station could not support all that at one time
    2. Bethany – 10 hours of graduation
    3. Bethany – let me do this math – 44 hours
    4. Me – uhhh
    5. Hannah – you can’t fit that many people in Kyle Field
    6. Me – yeah they have gameday traffic down to a science
  27. Everyone – Definently the 44 hours
  28. Twenty-eight thoughts in and they are still on Doctoral Canidates…
  29. Bethany – look, you’re not the only one with a laptop.
  30. I wonder if anyone has there Snapchat add nearby on…. no they don’t
  31. Hannah – we have to be loud
  32. Hannah – Cum Laude, whats that mean?
  33. That they’re smart
  34. Speaking of grades let me check mine
  35. The internet is too slow for that
  36. Look there is the not Hillary cap again
  37. 4 rows in 100 to go

  45. Brief conversation about how our parents were mean and never let us have sugary cereal for breakfast
  46. Bethany – such an expensive piece of paper
  47. Yeah they charge you 50 bucks for the diploma
  48. Bethany and Hannah – You have to buy your diploma
  49. Yeah…
  50. They should take my 72.06 Buetel Health Center Fee and put it towards my diploma. If I need a pregnancy test or a miss diagnosis, I’ll just use Web MD
  51. Hannah – I was on web MD the other day; I think I have diabetes

I shall finish here because I need my laptop to be safe and away before the War Hymn. And once the names are read its basically over and the drudge of graduation is done with. If you are still reading this well, thanks, I hope you enjoyed it.

So I challenge you to have fun even in bland situation such as a massive graduation, it’s possible you just have to work at it. As always; make good choices, share if you like what I said, comment if you have something to add, and I’ll see you on Thursday.
