I’ve been Commonwealth’d. Being bodily lifted up from one’s old life and dropped into another is just breathtaking.

Also, you know how you always wonder what personal possessions you would take with you from your home if you only had 15 minutes to collect them? I don’t wonder about that anymore.

I am standing in line at the Armory, waiting to take a little walk
around the fountain and to the Hall of Music, and I am so excited I can
barely stand still. I cannot believe I am actually going to graduate.
Wow, just … wow.
