Well, it was not just only bittersweet because of the obvious… leaving many of the faces you saw everyday , realizing everything’s not gonna be the same, but at the same time it’s a new beginning, new friends…etcetera. But it was more bitter, for me because of two things (majorly) : it’s more difficult to let go of a school and a routine you’ve had for the last 16 years (yeah 16; alumni since 1996) but also finding out of a sudden death minutes before walking through everyone like a graduate. A sudden death of a boy, who was 17 years old, and was going to graduate in two days, meaning today. The exceptional thing was that before knowing he was in intensive care on Tuesday, on Monday I thought about the last words he ever told me. Knowing his death moments before I walked with my gown, my cap and my tassel with a golden “Class of 2011” hanging in it, and knowing he was not going to do the same destroyed me. I tried to compose myself and seem happy and not let the news ruin my graduation, but it was not easy. I never expected to be so sad that day… at least not because of a death.
randomly, yet organized like a puzzle :)
