Graduation Day

Do you ever feel like you get all excited for graduation day and you think you're going to get to see everyone you spent however many years with all in one place and it's going to be so great to hang out with all of them, and then before you know it, it's over and you only talked to anyone for two minutes max? And now you're panicking because you don't know when you'll see them all again, and your world feels like it's only as wide and as deep as the number of people in your class and now it's going to have to completely change? And that you might just run into one of your classmates in 10 years and you'll say hi and be happy to see them, but you'll never spend a lot of time together again and graduation day is the day you realize that's how it will be? Do you ever feel like that?


  1. But there's the solicitors' exam still to go (alas), plus getting called to the bar!

    (More seriously, though, I know what you mean.)
