Monday morning I was called down to the office to get my name confirmation paper for my diploma. It’s basically a sheet of paper with your first, middle, and last name printed on it and a space for you and your parent/guardian to sign to verify the spelling of your name that will be printed on your diploma. It was interesting to see how a generally insignificant piece of paper made the fact that we are graduating this year a little more real.
In the past few weeks many students have been anxiously awaiting college acceptance letters to arrive in their mailboxes, and some have been finishing and sending out the last of their early action/early decision applications. For the college I’m working on now, I only have to send out my art portfolio before I hopefully receive an acceptance letter. Once I send my portfolio, I will have one acceptance, one pending, and two more applications to go.
