I haven't posted in a while, so there's a lot to catch up on.
Let's start about six weeks ago.
There was a bunch of deliberation and rigmarole before the actual graduation bit; they had five or six speeches, one of which was given by a Medal of Honor recipient who went there. I was reading funny stories on my iPod during some of the speeches, I would have been bored out of my skull otherwise.
Afterwards, I drank a bunch of soda before the party ended. It was a fun day.
It was also my last week at my Makerspace until the end of the summer, which is going to make it more difficult to work on my engineering projects.
After the movie ended, I went and had a burrito from Chipotle, and then went back home.
The party started at an enormous pond, where there were water guns, music, and a zip line. Charles and I spent a lot of time trying to commandeer his brother's large floating platform as pirates.
After a bit, some more of the graduating seniors from our school arrived. They seemed happy to see me, and I was very happy to see them. Many hugs were exchanged, despite the fact that I was wet from the pond.
After a while, we went in to eat. Charles' family is vegan, so there was a lot of food that I've never had a lot of, so I got to try some new stuff. While it wasn't something that I would eat regularly, it was cool to have that experience.
Soon after, we made some popcorn, seasoned with some delicious condiments, and we just talked around the table for a while. It was nice to have a hearty chat, and we all might not be together like this for a while. Well, not until Thanksgiving, anyway!
After we were done on the trampoline, Charles, Luis, and I went down to the basement, and played air hockey and foosball for a while. Then we played some Super Smash Bros until Luis had to leave.
He also has a lot of dogs. There's one enormous Great Dane, a feisty black lab, and something like three others.
