How did you feel walking at graduation?

It's something that most people do, but I was wondering if everyone actually WANTED to.

I always graduate in absentia...my Publishing graduation is this week I think, but already declined.

I do it for my family (high school, 1996; college this December). My social agoraphobia makes me mentally panic even though I outwardly appear bored - it completely drains me. I'd prefer something less "OMG L@@K @ MEE" and just skip to the reception.

Now that's an idea: just have the reception and let the president of the college walk around to everyone and hand them their diploma with a handshake and a "Now you're alumni - give us money".

I did it in high school, didn't do it in college, and will probably do it for graduate school. I feel no need to do it for myself, but for friends family and classmates. Then again the times that I did/will walk are small (70-200) person ceremonies and not like the one I did not walk (6,000 plus not including the graduate programs at the university.)

I had my high school graduation in 2006. There were tons of people crammed in a two story auditorium type place. I remember walking in and seeing my mom staring at me with those eyes! She was really proud and teary eyed and looking at her made me want to cry. lol. So I just waved and kept going so I wouldn't cry. Haha. There's the moment where they called my name and I got my diploma and you have to stare forward to get your pic taken and it was so nerve wracking I hardly remember what everyone looked like in that split second. It was a pretty good experience while it lasted. Afterwards I just went home and played videogames all day.

My high school graduation I only attended for my family. I had no interest in even going, but I went for them. I had no interest in HIGH SCHOOL, really, and I spent most of my time there wanting to leave and get my GED so I could start college.

Now, my graduations from other schools I was very excited about and proud

I skipped my college graduation. High school I dreaded. There were three graduating seniors giving speeches, three pastors giving speeches, our principal gave a speech, AND our baccalaureate all in one afternoon with the graduates sitting on the stage. (Parochial school.) Seemed like the longest afternoon of my life. lol

I didn't go to my high school graduation. I didn't care about going at all. I never went to college, so never graduated anything other than high school.

I loved the moment when I got to walk across the stage for graduation, but all the waiting around, the heat and all the people watching almost made it not worth going. I'm glad I did go though. Memories and all that junk.

i didn't walk for college, i didn't go to the graduation at all.

for highschool, i remember being deeply sad, knowing all my friends were soon to be far away, also i was mourning the past year. i'd had the most detrimental heartbreak of my lifetime and enduring that was really hellacious. i was glad to be out of there and moving far away from what was so much hell for me to endure. highschool was hell. senior year was hell. but i remember feeling really sad, like a sense of loss.
losing my virginity, losing my fiance, losing my friends in the near future, and then there was the fact that a friend of mine died before graduation, so her place was empty. yeah. it was a pretty sad day!


i've never been very comfortable with change though.

Walked for both high school and college. High school was relatively quick and painless, and it was cooler since I was sitting up on stage overlooking my peers. College was a big festivity thing, so it was expected. It was an experience.

I was sad, and though I didn't really feel proud (I never even had trouble passing a class) I did enjoy wearing my honorary Thespian Honors neck tassel. It was nice because it was something that brought my family together, and I felt so proud seeing my friends walk across the stage. I guess the real reason it was important for me was that it gave my hectic highschool life a feeling of closure, like I was finally done.

Because of that I will still go to my college graduation, even though it will probably be an immense class. I most certainly will go to my graduate school graduation, especially since I'll have spent 4 years with the same group of people.

I was embarrased and didnt want to fall LOL. I'm very shy about that type of stuff. Hubby was there (we just started dating at the time) and my mom and dad and my sister and nephews came out.

Afterwards we went to Kings resturant (Mike and I) and ended up seeing most of who graduated with me
