TODAY, I GRADUATE COLLEGE

In a few hours, I'll be walking down campus aisles to the finish line on central quad stage.

I've learned a lot. In fact, I just deleted about six paragraphs worth of stuff I learned in the past five years of collegiate academia.

But it all boiled down to the same point: Learn and listen, evaluate it on your own, be yourself no matter how many people think you're a weirdo and flourish with a silent and incredibly aggressive competitiveness to prove you're worth more than any degree could ever measure.

Oh! And park in level 2 of parking structure 4. Unfortunately I learned this in my final semester, to which I could have saved hundreds of dollars in parking permits over the years. But I dodged a parking ticket and a $100+ permit this time! Suck it, The System!!!

To class of 2009,
LET'S DO THIS. SHIT JUST STARTED GETTING REAL, SON.
