The best/worst thing for a high-schooler to experience before they take their leap into the real world. A last chance for friends/crushes/acquaintances/etc. to get together for the last time, and, hopefully, get phone numbers/e-mail addresses/Myspaces to talk to each other after they all leave high school.
At graduation, I tried to kiss my than girlfriend
, she moved away from the kiss, and told me that she was cheating on me someone else. She than proceeded to graduate while my dad took a picture of us standing together with our diploma covers. Needless to say, my graduation sucked ass. Also, don't throw your caps when you graduate. I did, and got back one without a graduating class pin.
