drowning in a sea of blue...

our graduation day was, in a word, blah. i didn't feel even a tad emotional during the ceremony. to me, attending it was simply something i had to do, because i was supposed to. had i only been seated somewhere at the back, i would have at least enjoyed it. but, being an awardee, i had to be placed in front, where the administrators could easily see my every move. well, come to think of it, it wasn't all that bad. they placed cushioned seats for us to occupy (unlike the others who only got monoblocs). talk about sitting your ass down for almost 4 hours, no weewee breaks, and having to pretend that you're actually taking pleasure in all that. sheesh. the only part, i believe, that i was able to show the slightest hint of emotion, was when we messed up the 'one batch, one soul' song that we had practiced for almost two weeks. now, that was funny.
after that oh-so-boring-i-wish-i-could-have-just-skipped-it graduation ceremony, we went to vivere to have lunch with my best friends and their families. we spent about another 4 hours there, but that portion of the day, i really did enjoy. it's been a while since the 5 of us (karen, alex, kitine, kitel and myself) have been able to get together like that. it was also the perfect opportunity for our parents to meet each other and sit down to talk (after years of not having a clue whose mom or dad is whose).
i went home with kitine and took a really long nap at her place. we woke up at around 8, had dinner, and then i took a dip in the pool. it's been an awful long time since i last went swimming (think june of last year). my dad picked me up 3 hours after.
gosh, i miss my friends already.
