No matter where you are, high school graduation always has some sort of “totally freaking ratchet” component.

Everyone gets all, “OMG I love you all so much, I hope we keep it touch!” but you know that’s a load of crap.

But don’t worry. You’re not the only one who hates all these people. Beyonce feels your pain.

So anyways, you start the procession and you think you’re looking fly.

But in reality you’re that awkward person.

You finally sit down.

And then some administrator comes up to give the opening remarks.

She just keeps talking about how proud she is…

Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.

You’re trying to behave yourself and not look totally bored out of your f*cking mind, but the kid next to you is JUST. SO. ANNOYING.

For reals though,

Then the valedictorian gets up and accidentally (or not so accidentally) says something extremely offensive in his speech.

And the rest of the time he just sounds like he’s trying too hard.

Dude…

Please stop.

Seriously.

I MEAN IT.

At this point, you might be asking yourself, “Why am I even here?”

I mean, you hate these people.

Your parents are annoying you from the stands (MOM…STOP CRYING).

And the next thing you know, everyone’s saying how much they’ll miss everybody else.

But just remember: it’s your graduation.

DO WHAT YOU WANT.

And enjoy being a graduate!
