This was not a
traditional graduation to say the least. My school held a virtual graduation where they prerecorded speakers and then broadcasted them on a local TV station. It was pretty underwhelming but what can you do about it. Our commencement speaker was the 3rd fastest man in the world. Cool guy but his speech was kind of... interesting. It was mostly about his life and some non realistic advice (such as "college wasn't for me so I contracted to a famous track team for millions of dollars and decided to go to the olympics instead"). I would have liked the whole thing to have gone differently, I wish my senior year was normal but 2020.
My one of my friends surprised me by arranging a huge drive by. There were tons of people and it made me feel so special. I went out for a speical dinner and had a littl eparty with some family and family friends which was really fun. I also got bunch of texts and pictures from my friends and family congratulating me, which was really nice! It was all definately better than the actual graduation haha.
I went to a few grad parties as well. Typical high school crap. Kinda sad that I prob wont see a lot of my friends ever again. I'll have to try to see some of them before we start college in the fall.
Overall the day was great. I couldn't have asked for a better quarantine graduation.
You may not have been the cleanest theater. Your prices might have been outragous and your serving sizes might have been huge. Your floors might have needed to be vaccumed and the chairs might have been some of the dirtiest things I've ever touched. You might have had some very questionable scents floating around and you might have been one of the stuffiest buildings I've ever stepped foot in...
I watched the SpaceX Launch today and honestly wow.
I feel like I am now understanding how incredible it is to see humans go up to space. And now with SpaceX, I believe there is a really high chance of us seeing more and more humans go to space. Maybe even space tourism. Elon Musk must be popin champaign right now. Having a privately owned space companies make space travel so much more efficient.
Everything during the launch just looked so sleek and futuristic. The shuttle itself is really incredible. It was smooth and rounded and just so much more advanced than the space shuttles we have seen in the past. The inside had these touch screens which reminded me of some super high tech futuristic movie. Similarly, the astronaut suits were so modern and cutting edge. I know I keep saying that it was so futuristic but that is really the only way I can describe it. Throw everything you know of space travel and NASA out because this SpaceX launching has changed everything. I can't even imagine the how the astronauts were feeling throughout all of this.
Seeing this happen makes me think of all of the potential there is to see and learn more about our galaxy in my lifetime. It is almost surreal.
