I had the strangest dream last night - I was back at my HS graduation. For some reason we were just having it this year, even though I graduated in 1995. In my dream, I was late for graduation, too and ran in to be the last one to receive my diploma. After that I was supposed to give a speech b/c I was salutatorian (which I really was), but all the other people kept getting up to talk - random people out of the audience. Eventually all the students had got up and moved other places to sit and finally someone said, "Hey, there's still one student sitting there" - which was me. So, I got up and walked up to the podium. I first apologized for being late, then told everyone that I had a speech prepared, but that I decided to talk about something else to them. I don't remember now what my speech was about, but I know it was good b/c I got a lot of laughs, a lot of applause, and a lot of tears!
You know how people always say, "If I knew then what I knew now..." - well, it was like I got that opportunity. It was like I had gone through college and started my life and then came back to share that knowledge with my classmates or something. It was a pretty cool dream now that I think about it, even though it was also pretty screwed up!!!
