I graduated highschool in 2017.

The tassle in this tile falls over the top, signifying my second of three notable graduations. The height at which this lies is also based on the year of the ceremony.

I had no real high school graduation; my high school was online, so I was really just a class of one. It was a bit anticlimactic, but it wasn’t a big deal. I had a lot to look forward to: I was ready to go to Parsons, my brother was getting married in Ireland in June, and my best friend Caroline and I were setting off on our Interrail trip just a week after. It was the best summer of my life, and it felt like a celebration in itself.
