I see many of here (including me) have or are going to shortly graduate from high school or maybe college. so share any stories, facts, whatever...

I just graduated high school, in a class a little over 120, don't know the exact number. The ceremony was pretty boring as expected. Though our "class president" former vice president speech was pretty funny, he ended it with a quote from a song I've never heard off that went "this is why, this is why, this why I'm hot," I think. Anyways they refused to play our class song (Free bird) claiming that it was too long, and they made us change out class flower from the venus fly trap to the daisy, because venus fly traps are too expensive. On a sad note, they gave an honorary diploma to kid that died two years ago of muscular dystrophy.

D: Oh God, your class song was fucking Freedbird?! You poor, poor soul. I have never hated anything as much as I hate that song.

Haha, when I graduated, our class song was Free Fallin'. & we all got bitched at because our class motto (the first one; we later had to change it) had ties to the Holocaust.

^ What was your class motto? I'm curious now.

Wow..all the youngins.. ;_;

I could have graduated high school twice now...wow..4 years since graduation.

Our song was green day - time of your life. it sucked. we almost had sky is the limit by biggie but of course I went to school with a bunch of little emo kids who couldn't possibly handle having a rap song represent them...I'm so glad high schools over.

Work is liberty.

We eventually had to change it, though. 8D We changed it to 'life is a garden - dig it.'

wow...I see why they made you change it. Unless your school really did feel like a concentration camp...then I could see it being appropriate.

I like what you guys changed it to though...very hippie.

^ The teachers didn't realize what it was from until a few weeks before Graduation. Back in 6th grade, two guys I know, Sam & Anthony, decided it would become our class motto one day and for a short time it was. Graduation cards were printed with the motto on it and it was printed on our Prom stuff. I imagine it was such a hassle having to reprint everything.

Had a graduation ceremony before we actually left because the school was so broke they couldn't afford a proper formal one. My year was a pretty big year compared to previous ones even though we only had just under 100 people. As we went up to collect our Record of Achievement folder your name came up on the powerpoint presentation and underneath was a caption that your friends chose for you. Some of them were a little rude, some a little offensive.
I miss my year.
