My sister's graduation from UCSD yesterday was quite possibly the coldest one I've ever attended. You would think that San Diego in June would be relatively hot, but it was cold, cloudy and chilly. I forgot to bring so many things with me this trip -- always be wary of leaving on a trip on Friday the 13th... Some of the commencement speakers at UCSD were some of the best I've ever heard (or perhaps I'm just getting more and more sentimental the more graduations I attend).
Maybe it was due to the weather, or maybe courtesy diminishes with each generation, but at the end of the commencement ceremony, there were about 2 dozen graduates still sitting in the chairs, maybe about 100 guests still watching, while during the ceremony, the graduates would get their fake diploma, and walk off the stage and go home with their families, rather than returning to their seats. I have never seen anything like it before... so the recessional was about 2 dozen people and the staff on stage. A truly sad sight to see. It did however, make finding my sister much easier after the ceremeony, when your family is the only four people sitting in the entire section.
Today is Father's Day, so be sure to call your Dad and wish him well.
