Just went to the “graduation ceremony” (for lack of a better term, I guess) of some of my friends who were (or ended up) a year lower than me.
There were quite a lot of people there that graduated with me last year. The bonds with people who stayed behind are still pretty strong, good to see. Boy, I remember standing there a year ago. Graduating myself, giving a speech and all that. Heh. Was so worried back then, but in the end all turned out okay. The folks who graduated today are probably feeling the same. Well, not exactly, hardly anyone’s as much of a wuss as I am… was… am.
Yeah. I’ve come a long way. I’m not longer terrified of giving presentations, for starters. I’ve become a bit more okay with lonely, scary social situations. I’ve learned Java is mostly So Enterprise™ bullshit, grown to hate many (often actually decent) methods and practices, turned myself into an, on average, productive person. I actually got my propaedeutics cum laude, which is pretty cool (despite not feeling like much of an achievement, considering how easily I did it (still like to brag about it though, hue)).
Summer vacation has now officially started for me as far as I’m aware, and I feel pumped. A year’s passed already since the moment of mixed feelings that was graduating. The year sure went by fast. It was a pretty okay one though. Yeah, I think I can say that confidently. This year was pretty okay.
We now interrupt your study with planned summer vacation.
