    When is your ceremony? Do you have anyone exciting speaking? Do you have a plan for the "real world"?

    I walk on May 22nd (only 8 days!!!!! :cool1: ) and the wife of Curt Schilling (the pitcher for the Red Sox) will be speaking. As for after May 22nd, no definite job plans yet, but I can at least keep my part-time job until I find a "career".

    Congratulations Grads! You've definitely earned that diploma!! :banana:

    My commencement was just slightly over a year ago ... our speaker was Phylicia Rashad ("Claire Huxtable" from the Cosby Show) ... she was ok, but I didn't really think she was all that good of a graduation speaker. (Friends that are graduating this year have said that their commencement speaker is Dr. Jane Goodall)

    Our University-wide commencement was last night; it was fantastic! John McCain spoke and there were fireworks at the end. Usually, commencement and convocations are on the same day, but this year they split it up for the first time -- commencement on Friday, Individual college convocations on Saturday. I'll walk later this afternoon.

    Some pictures:
    The set up:

    My friend Jen and I waiting for everything to get started:

    I'm ready to be DONE -- convocation's at 4:30, and hopefully it'll be less than 3 hours long.

    I graduate next Thursday, the 26th. Saddly, I'm only getting out of high school, so nothing really cool for me here. At least I'm off to college! :cloud9:

    I graduated yesterday and I still can't believe it. Nick Donofrio, a VP at IBM, spoke at our ceremony. He was pretty interesting, but the best part for me was at the beginning, when the president of my college announced that the ceremony was being broadcast over the Internet via webcam to a student who was sent to Afghanistan, and he was given his diploma over the Internet. He was actually interviewed on FoxNews this morning.

    Congratulations and good luck to everyone graduating!
