Lost the boxing match.

emoticon Yep, got bullied. Tears involved. Why do I deal with these people? Diplomas. One and only reason times two. One for each child. Will be glad when I don't have to do this anymore.

This too shall pass.....but not soon enough to suit me.

A friend of mine rescued me and my lack of teckieness by emailing pictures for the yearbook in jpeg form for me. emoticon

I asked my DD to write her bio for the graduation program due tomorrow. She couldn't seem to find the time until I wrote one for her which she HATED. I said, "If you hate it so much do it yourself." This is what she came up with:

Hello my name is DD. I love nature, animals, and exploring all that life has to offer. After I graduate this year, I plan on pursuing all of my whims and interests. I do plan on going to college, just not necessary straight away. I do not know what I want to study or dedicate my life to; I don’t think that anyone does really. All of our plans come and go, changing as our lives go on. Nobody needs to have it together or all figured out wither they are 18, 25, or 43! Life is about pursing happiness and the things that make you happy are always going to vary. Sure, I could have a plan to jump straight into college and graduate in eight years with some big, fancy degree and then work hard until I can retire but what fun is that? Nobody’s plans are going to stay the same as life goes on. Nobody’s! I want to get out into the world and see what it has to offer. Maybe I’ll dread my hair and backpack through Europe, or possibly move to California and life in a tent on the beach. Life is about enjoying what is around you; living, learning, and growing. “Not all of those who wonder are lost.” J.R.R. Tolkien.

I thought it was well done. I had to do a rewrite to shorten it to only 150 words. Which one do you like better? A or B.

A) My name is DD. I love nature, animals, and exploring. I plan on pursuing my whims, interests and going to college, not necessarily straight away. I don't know what I want to study or dedicate my life to. Nobody needs to have all figured out whether they are 18, 25, or 43! Life is about pursuing happiness. Sure, I could have a plan to jump straight into college, graduate in eight years with some fancy degree then work hard until retirement, but what fun is that? Nobody’s plans stay the same. Nobody’s! I want to get out and see what the world has to offer. Maybe I’ll dread my hair and backpack through Europe, or move to California, live in a tent on the beach. Life is about enjoying what is around you; living, learning, and growing. “Not all of those who wonder are lost.” J.R.R. Tolkien. 151

B) "Hello, my name is DD. I love nature, animals, and exploring all that life has to offer. After I graduate I plan on pursuing all of my whims and interests. I plan on going to college, just not necessarily straight away. I don't know what I want to dedicate my life to, I don't think anyone does really. Nobody has it all figured out, weather they are 18, 25, or 43! Sure, I could have a plan to jump straight into college, graduate with some fancy degree and work hard until retirement, but what fun is that? Nobody's plans stay the same, nobody's! I want to get out into the world and see what it has to offer. Maybe I'll backpack through Europe, or move to California. Life is about enjoying what is around you, living, learning, and growing. "Not all of those who wander are lost" J.R.R, Tolkien" I think that's 150...

Jeepers 1am again. No wonder I can't loose weight no matter how hard I try. Well at least the Bio is done except for the voting part and emailing it in. I'll do that tomorrow after I help clean the Croft House at the Zoo. I get to help make it all pretty for the spring busy season. I won't be getting there early enough to pet a horse but I'll be able to sleep well I hope. emoticon
