    Thanks for sharing this Kimck! Great message. When she mentioned not remembering the speaker's address at her own graduation, I had to stop and think for a long time who the speaker was at my graduation. After much time-wasting on this, I suddenly remembered that I didn't attend my college graduation! (at the time i had a "too cool for graduation" attitude).

    I remember nothing from my college graduation, however, if J.K. Rowling was the speaker I'm sure I would have remembered much of it!

    I didn't attend my high school graduation. My dad went anyway and picked up my diploma after!

    What a little pain in the arse I was!
