I really like that graduation is also called commencement. It's the turning of the page, a start of a new chapter. It's standing at the precipice of the unknown and welcoming it's uncertainty. And, as KCAD valedictorian Brianna Spicer said, "What are you going to do with an art degree? Whatever I want."
So here's to classes ending (for now—I'm not ruling out getting my MFA someday) and to scary new beginnings, whatever they may be.
Congratulations to all my fellow graduates of the class of 2016.
