My baccalaureate ceremony was today. That's the part of the graduation that you go up and shake people's hands as your name is called out; tomorrow is commencement, where you toss your hat up. As I understand it. In both you listen to lots of extremely long speeches.

Today was absurdly long, and mostly boring, though somehow very strange, between the "son of pigeon breeder" speech, the useless lecture on Confucius, and the "Both Kim Jong Il and Justin Bieber are morons - don't emulate either" speech - none of which were as good as they sound. And then they called up over 1,500 students by name. It took forever. My parents got so bored they started counting up how many people were in the program, how many were summa cum laude, how many were magna cum laude (I was one), and how many were cum laude, and then trying to figure out if it was determined by GPA or percentile. I mostly read news websites on my Blackberry.


Tomorrow, I graduate. Eeep. >_
