Yesterday there was a graduation ceremony in my college. Almost of the alumnus yesterday were my friends.
actually I never care about graduation ceremony, every times this ceremony are held i just passing the crowd in front of the building where the ceremony are held without any care. but yesterday was different, because two of my close friends were being the alumnus for yesterday graduation then i should of course joined with the crowd- with people who also waiting for sending their congratulation to their friend or family who would come out from the building.
while waiting my friends came out too, i started observe people in the crowd. Almost of them was the family member of yesterday alumnus but weren't their parents since their parents were also attend the ceremony in the building. their expression were just usual that like nothing special happened and many of them seemed tired. the noisiness came from undergraduate students who waited for their seniors or friends, who finally have became the Alumnus since yesterday, came out. They were really enthusiastic, much more than the family member of the alumnus today. I guess that's because they exactly knew how hard to graduate from this college.
felt the atmosphere around me made me asked my self would I join this graduation ceremony when my time comes? actually, i had been thinking about this again and again but even went i saw the happy face of my friends who came out from the entrance of graduation building, it still doesn't change my mind. i won't join this ceremony when I graduated.
why? first of all I don't think this is the way i want to celebrate my graduate. Graduate for me means a freedom, that I should celebrate with joyful, not with the bustle of fulfill a lot of requirement for joining the boring ceremony which cost a lot without any positive impact. instead of pay the fee for graduation ceremony I prefer to utilize it for shopping, buy new gadget, or join the entrepreneur camp. I'm grateful that my parents are okay with my thought. I know some of you would disagree with me, but I don't ask you to agree anyway. everyone has their thought to celebrate the special moment of their life, for me I would prefer to give my self a present which can make me feel happy and enjoy. I don't think I should experience all of the moment which people thought just happen 'once in our life' if I don't feel there is something on it.
