Well, I'm not going to go on and on about Graduation, but I will say that it was incredible. We're such a tight-knit class, and I'm going to miss everyone terribly. Yes, I was very emotional at the Ceremony, but can you really blame me?

Project Graduation was a blast, and to be honest, I had much more fun than I thought I would. It was great to see everyone, especially "my Boys". Quite a pleasant change to be able to talk to Neil, Garrett and Ethan face to face, for once. Contrary to popular belief, Garrett hung out with us quite a lot, and we all enjoyed his company. The food was good, and I beat the game Soul Caliber on my first try.

Beginner's luck? I think so. But luck or not, I was still able to beat Richard in two out of three fights. He was very gracious about it, and I could even say that he was a bit proud of me. Either way, it earned me a coveted invitation to the next Toxic Soap LAN party. Am I excited? You'd better believe it.

I ended up winning a "purple wastebasket set". Yes, it sounds about as lame as it comes. But once I got it home (at six o'clock in the morning) and looked it over (at around noon), I realized that it was very useful. It's actually a whole organizational set, which is exactly what I needed. Go figure.

Over the past weekend, I traveled with Richard and his family over to Sarasota (a bit south of Tampa) for a Kendo tournament. It was Richard's first time fighting in a tournament, and he did very well. He was even able to put up a reasonable fight against a very highly-ranked sensei. I was pretty impressed by all of the fighting that I saw there, and the trip itself was nice. Tristan was his usual adorable self, and we had the chance to sit around and watch movies. Very relaxing.

To save time, we stopped in a Burger King's parking lot and my mom picked me up there. Once in the car, I headed straight to Jackie's surprise birthday party. I showed up incredibly late, which was rude of me, but I had tried my best. The party quickly moved to the Oaks, where we saw a movie (and Ethan and Sabrina). I got to pester Ethan a bit while he was working, and since Sabrina had just gotten off work, she joined us. We saw the soonest movie that was playing: Madagascar. Half of the audience was younger than twelve years old, but we had a blast anyway. It's the people that you're with that make those types of situations so fun. We all laughed so hard through that movie, and came away with a few more silly quotes to add to our reportoires.

"What's a good-natured bite on the buttocks between friends?"

"Well, yes. Of course we're going to fling poo at him."

Good times.

There's been a small war going on around here, but that's a whole other story. And one that's best told on a need-to-know basis.

Small details that I've left out:
1) I was sick in the car on the way to Sarasota.
2) Some guys honked at me while I was walking back to the car with Richard's mom. I didn't turn to look because I thought that they were honking at the car in front of them. So they shouted "That's right...Just keep on walking!" Not only were they rude, they were apparently blind as well.
3) My mom bought me an expensive bathingsuit in return for my promise that I'd get a tan this summer (Simply impossible, but she doesn't know that yet...).
4) Don't be fooled by his cute, cuddly, and otherwise adorable appearance; Tristan is a ticking timebomb.
