How absurd is the moment of the realization of the impending doom that is college graduation? Very, I say. The image of a toga and a cap and being done with schooling forever just does not compute in my puny, pea-sized brain. More so if that image happens to be of me. That is just such a crazy, foreign concept that I can’t wrap my brains around. That, and the six-month-or-so long “weekend” between the point of graduation and the point of employment.
But anyway. Before I break my brain, let me digress, or just post about something tangentially related to this: graduation picture day. In other words, I just had mine taken today. Yay? Sure. Here are some photos:

Speaking of balloons. They were filled with helium, by the way. We all know what that means:
music by sufjan stevens. on another note, i LOVE my new computer. it is so easy to edit videos.
i used to slave away on them because my old one was so slow. but now it is all great and stuff :D
So, I went as Max Fischer. I am living now in the constant fear of making a guest appearance on Tenenbaum Fail. This fear is not a joke. It is real. Don’t you dare submit my picture, blog reader. :(
More pictures under the ‘cut’.

The reason why I haven’t been around is because I went to the beach for a week. It was there that I found out about my incapacity to be a tourist. Here is a list of things I didn’t do:
- Parasail, ride a banana boat, hop on islands
- Get a henna tattoo
- Get my hair braided and beaded
- Get so piss-ass drunk that I pass out on the beach
- Basically, everything someone does on vacation in Boracay.
However, I did tan myself silly and read a couple of books, so I guess, all in all, it was a pretty O.K. vacation. I even find that I would (kinda) like to go back there in the near future. Especially when the weather here in Manila is horribly grey, and while I do enjoy the general raininess, it seems a little wrong when it happens in the summer. But anyway.
I do have a plan (!) for the future of this website. But to tide you over, here are a few more pictures from the trip, after the jump, of course.
