Marks are in and the verdict is out. I get to graduate! I wasn't too worried about whether or not I got to dress up in the green and gold grad gown on Saturday, but it's a relief to see the marks and breathe a little easier. My Human Metabolism class had me a little worried considering I nearly broke down crying after I finished writing that exam. I guess it wasn't that bad after all! I am happy.
So, one week today I will be at the school, all dressed up and listening to some person tell us that now that we have these expensive pieces of paper and we now get to all be successful and the world is our oyster. Where did that expression even come from anyway?
Plus, mom and dad will be here in a few days! I just really really hope that the weather somehow does a 180 and the sun comes out. Even if just for a few days! But the idea of having the parents here makes me so happy. I miss my family.
Tip of the Day: After some minor research, "World is Your Oyster" comes from a Shakespeare play. Basically some guy said the world is his oyster and he planned to open with a sword, which I think means that the world is full of slimy masses of stinky shellfish that we have to swallow whole to avoid the texture. Makes sense to me.
