Graduation

Have I ever talked about my love of Kanye West? I think I have. I don't know why I like it so much, but I do. Wake up Mr. West, Mr. West. I like him. Kind of aggressive sometimes, kind of pretentious, but I forgive him.

So, I'm graduating. Two degrees: Philosophy and English. I don't know what I'm going to do. DC for a while. College was easy. It was like a long long walk. You get bored but don't have the guts to tell the people you're with that you want to go home. I guess I just always have felt too directed, too kept in the program. I want to know about all the things that make the theories fail, ya know? I've thought so many times about not paying tuition and just getting a library card. I'm pretty sure I'd get more out of the library card.

Though college has been boring, this time in my life has been nothing but exciting. Friends, girls, adventures, they've just been unstoppable. I think that when I leave my last day of class I'll be sad. Not cry or anything. Maybe just a big dose of reflection. I'm going to tell my kids to go to college just so they can think that there is a camera crew following them around trying to record what will happen next. That's really how it's been for me, and I'm thinking that's how it will be.

Maybe a little like Kanye West.
