Why don’t you attend your graduation, idiot?

To those who decides not to go to your graduation,

You got the following reasons, or excuses:

  1. School is hogging your money
  2. It’s boring
  3. It’s meaningless

Or let me sum it up for you:

  • My friends are not going, I’m a crowd follower, I don’t want to be teased, keep it simple, I’m not going too.

I decided to post this after our school is because in this way, I won’t be blamed by all of you, that I’m a very, very harsh critic.

School is not hogging your money, and to those who got the yellow mini book during graduation, you will notice how desperate school is trying to get money to host your graduation. They found about 10 sponsors, and they even have to invite the principal of a college to advertise their institute. By the way, the free goodie bags are not free to you, instead they are a way to advertise. Much like product placement in movies.

Next it’s boring? True, it’s boring, because it’s formal, no party, no prom night, and no alcohols. But do you know that photo shooting session is where the fun at? One day you will regret that on Facebook, there are so many photos that you friends have taken at MPAJ auditorium, and you were not there? It’s a once in a lifetime deal, you let it go, don’t even try to ask everybody come and take a photo again.

It’s meaningless? You sure? A few years after you will change your mind on this.

Your absence shows that you are not being supportive.
