After a week of procrastination and all-nighters to finish up our final semester of college, my peers and I attended our commencement ceremony, walked across stage to receive an empty diploma cover, and flipped our tassels to the side. (Was it left to right? Or right to left? I still don’t know if I did it right.)
We hugged our families and friends, thanked our favorite professors and mentors, and probably didn’t take enough pictures. We went our separate ways too fast, rushing to graduation dinners and parties.
We returned to school the next day to pack up the rest of our apartments, and drove off campus for the last time.
