Well today was officially my last exam paper ( gce o levels)

meaning that as of now, i no longer go to highschool. I have graduated.

i've been looking forward to this day for a SUPER long time,but now that its come around.. well its pretty anti-climatic.

Today means that i no longer have to wear a uniform, that i can have my hair however i want, that i dont have to wake up at 6 in the morning. It also means i no longer have to do maths or chinese. It means i dont have to go to my crappy school.

yet it doesnt feel as good as it should.

secondary school(high school s its referred to here) was not a bad time, neither was it amazing.
I made some decent friends, but none that im super close to .I dont think i'll miss it.

Yet i feel like i dont have closure. Graduating didnt give me a new perspective, neither does it really change my life.

In two months, i'll have to return to my school for one last time to pick up my results. I hope by then i get used to the fact i no longer go to secondary school.

i just thought it would feel better, like a sigh of relief .
Instead i feel a trickle of sadness as i look back at the many years i've spent in primary and secondary education, i think back at what i will miss, and what i wish i've done different. I think of all the mistake and regrets. I think of all the good times too, the friends and the craziness.

So now its time to end that chapter in my life, to move on to things i really want to do. To go overseas to study, to pursue art and design and to do some cool internships.
All i can say is .. i hope that this anti-climax will lead to an exciting beginning and better things to come..

anyway.. LOL this was my thoughts on graduating..
How did you feel when you graduated?

I had the same exact situation (uniforms, shitty school and everything) and when I graduated I didn't feel properly happy. Then a few days later I was taking a shower and it hit me all at once. I almost cried I was so happy all at once.

Am I the only one who thinks it's painful to read a long, thought-out, heartfelt post only to see it end with "LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL?"

Graduation was really bittersweet for me. I felt like I really finally blossomed socially my senior year. I looked forward to getting the hell away from my hometown and not having to wake up at 7 every morning, but looking back, I miss all of my friends horribly.

Get used to that vague feeling of disappointment. Stuff is generally a bit crap.

Yeah, it was way anti-climactic for me as well. I tossed my cap, got in my car, put on Weezer (Blue) and drove away. You don't feel the real changes til you start College/Uni.

the reason graduating is so anti-climatic is because you know you dodged a bullet that is highschool, but then when you slowly turn away your head turns to then face down into the barrel of the cannon that is college.

I did not care when I left high school. It was not a complete aste for me, but it was nothing major either. Looking back now if I could go back I would do it in a heartbeat.

GCSEs? You can't complain until you've got your A levels out the way and have actually got some half decent qualifications, which will still serve little purpose.

I asked my son he said nothing but he just asked me he wants a psyachatrist (spelling?) Because he heard voices calling out his name. What a freak.

I was so happy to leave high school. My first year of college was a little overwhelming, but I got it together and I love it now.

Well, when I graduated most were thinking "FINALLY!!" I kinda felt like I didn't get what was supposed to get out of it. I don't mean like going to parties or doing stupid shit, I just thought I could've socialized a lot better.

My advice to any new graduates or future graduates of high school which was learned the hard way. Go to college or at least a trade school!!! I was so happy to graduate high school I just figured I'd go out and get a job and things would be A ok. Man was I wrong!! I've worked some hell-ish jobs anything from a 3rd shift job fixing semi-trucks and trailors which was absolute hell in the dead of winter to a plant job where you had to be seated the whole time (10 hour days!!!) to construction which again sucks in the winter. I work long hours plus it's very hard work. I've actually had to carry a five gallon bucket of concrete in each hand to places we couldn't get a concrete truck into, which took like 20 trips back and forth...that SUCKS!!! Now i'm basically working two full time jobs. I work construction as my day job and I'm trying to make a go of my own business which is in my sig. Definately go to college guys so when you do get out you can go out and get a decent well paying job. It doesn't pay anymore to just have a high school diploma believe me.

I was the same. Leaving was so easy, and it carried no emotional baggage with it. Then when I went off to college I was truly alone. All my good friends went to different places in the country, and I was left without any. I think everyone misses it because now we see that whatever held us back wasn't such a bfd.

EDIT: and the girls were hotter in H.S.

After I graduated, I was pissed off right and proper that in two months I had to be start all over again. It should be noted though that I never really went to school in my last year.

EDIT: The girls were WAY hotter indeed.
