I bought the cap, gown and tassel.
Invited my family and friends
And walked that very short walk to
Receive what you worked so hard
To earn the past four years.
Very expensive piece of paper,
At least according to my loan statement.
Is now sitting in an expensive frame
On the floor of my bedroom. But I do
Not feel much different.
I thought I would feel
but now I just feel...pretty much poor.
Virginia Tech has made my life richer, yes. Yet I will miss those four years dearly. Most of all, I will miss the security found with-in daily, weekly routines of class and work and roommates and weekends. But I will move on, in attempts to create a more vivid tomorrow. A brighter future for myself. I'll let ya know how it goes ;-)
