There were many happy moments, and a few sad ones. The day had a very bittersweet flavor to it...there were many dualities. (I don't know that I'd go so far as to call them ironies...)
Graduation is a very happy time, yet it means that I may not see him again. I suppose all such transitions have a good, and a bad...watching him go is no less difficult for me than it was to leave all my high school friends when the time came to go to college. Yet, it is time to move on...he now has a degree, and can (or would be able to if the economy wasn't crap) get a well-paying job doing computer work. He can be mostly self-sufficient, which is something that is a long way off for me.
Paul, I'm happy for you. I hope that everything will work out the way you want it to.
I met queueball at the graduation ceremony...which was a rather interesting experience in and of itself. "Hi! Nice to meet you!" *hug*. I think if everybody did it that way, the world would be a happier place. I wish we had had more time to talk.
northing and I are turning out to be pretty decent friends, despite the fact that this is only the second time we've met face-to-face. All that LJ commenting seems to be helping. :)
And while we're on the subject of random people...what can I say...doctor_samuel is just as evil and sinister (in that innocent, puppy-dog sort of way) as ever.
So...here we are. The LJ network continues to solidify.
