Bah, fuck school. I rarely check my university email, because I don't ever get emails from the school. That's not true; I actually checked quite frequently up until the end of October, even though I was never sent anything.

Oh, and THEN I missed a bunch of important emails. Because I was busy not remembering to check my university email for 2 weeks.

Not only did I miss the deadline to purchase cap + gown (even though it's a month away still and the company is here), I also needed to CLAIM tickets, which I also missed the deadline on (though I missed it by like 2 hours so I tried submitting it anyway). The cap and gown thing is quite annoying because now I get charged a late fee that's just as expensive as the gown itself. And I only requested two tickets, because SEVERAL idiots who don't know how to use the email system complained to the entire graduating class about their whole families needing tickets, and I thought I'd worry about at least getting 2 like I warned my family I might get. I don't know if I'd be able to get more than 2 anyway, as it appears they are in high demand. I also don't know who the fuck to choose - my biological parents, or Mom and Paul? Or what? I think I'll tell them to decide amongst themselves because I am not playing that political game.

I got most of my powerpoint presentation done for Wednesday. I just need to fine-tune some things and create my actual speech from it. I also need to write the actual analysis paper, but that's really just taking details from the presentation and expanding them into sentences. After that presentation and turning my portfolio in, I am DONE with school. DONEEEE. Graduating. Bachelor's degree ahoy.

Consequently, I am quite busy atm. I am using my alternate holiday (in exchange for working Thanksgiving) on Wednesday so that Steve and I can get a nice night together, and I am busy as hell on the 18th, what with work, then benefits meeting, then work meeting, plus gifts and Harry Potter. Friday is my birthday, which I plan to spend relaxing with Steve and enjoying gifts. And Saturday is spending time with Roy, his family, and my sister, and I dunno but I think I'm doing something with Mom's family Sunday.

Wow. That's all there is to say about all the things about to collide in a spectacular, and possibly explosive, way. The upsides are obvious in saying fare thee fucking well to college, and PRESENTS! =D

You know, I didn't bother walking for my college graduation--saved me money and time that I didn't feel my college deserved anymore after the years/cash I put into it. I just didn't feel it was important. In the end, it was like a premonition that no one in the employer world would care that I graduated either. Haha. Oh bitterness.

I don't care at all about walking - it's for my mom. When I told her about the ticket dilemma, all she had to say was, "Well I don't care how many tickets you get as long as *I* get to go!"

I think it might have something to do with being one of the few people in my family to graduate college (Paul has a business degree, my paternal grandpa graduated college with a degree in education, and some great aunts and uncles, but everyone else pretty much seemed to drop out of school for various reasons).
