We Did It!

This is for all my fellow graduates:

This week is a huge week.

This is the week we have been waiting for the last 4 years.

Where all of our hard work finally pays off.

Where we forget all the stress, and remember only the good times.

The week where we get to do what 70% of Canadians our age don't.

Where we become more than just students at the university.

We become Alumni.

Where we get to look back on all those nights we stayed in, not with resentment, but pride.

And where we look back at all the nights we DIDN'T stay in, not with regret - but happiness.

Because those were the nights we will never forget.

With the friends we will never lose.

This is the week we don't understand all the weird emotions we feel.

The week where we laugh.

Where we cry.

Where we get to dress up and really feel like grown ups.

Because we are grown ups.

This is a time we will look back on for the rest of our lives.

This is the week where everything really gets to be all about us.

The week that we are allowed to brag.

Where we finally get recognition for all the hard work and money we've spent.

This is the time we get to take the stage.

Where we get to take it all in.

Because this is when get to show the world that we didn't give up.

This is the week we finally get to say that we did it.

... we did it!

Congratulations to the class of 2012:

Long Live
