It's Almost Time to Graduate
Hello world this is Kristine Ann Melendez with these words to say. As I said in my blog in the past I am going to graduate with my former GED high school Access. I'm still honored to be part of this special event and it's going to be AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!! The graduation is going to be on Tuesday June 22ND, 2010. I can't wait to go and I'm ready for it. I even picked out the dress I'm going to wear. To be honest I picked out that dress last year because I thought I was going to get my diploma before the Access graduation of 2009. Sadly I didn't pass the math part of the GED test in June of 2009. But that was then and this is now. I'm going to wear my hair down because every graduation from grade school all the way to my old high school's graduation my mom has always picked out my hair style for all my graduations in the past. When I graduate from P.S. 158 at the age of ten in the year 1998 my mom had me wear a big white clip on bow in my hair. I felt like a birthday present at my own graduation. When I graduate from M.S. 167 at the age of 13 in the year 2001 I wore curls so wild and crazy that my cap didn't fit right. I blame my mom for that so thanks mom!!!!!!!!!!! When I graduate from Humanities at the age of 17 in the year 2005 my mom tricked me into wearing this gross hair gel that was brown like poop for some hairstyle that she thought was cute. I thought it was lame and pointless. Now that I'm finally graduating from Access I told my mom she is not allow to pick out my hair style for this graduation. However I did need her help for what kind of accessories to wear. I bought these pretty clip on earrings that dangle. Just to let you all know I never piered my ears and I never will. Everyone I know is happy and proud of me for all the hard work I put into earning for my GED diploma. It wasn't easy but I knew if I do my best I can accomplish anything I put my mind to. Now that I'm going to graduate from Access I would just like to say to my all my teachers at my former GED high school thanks for always believing in me when there were times I didn't believe in myself when I always thought I was going to fail the GED test. Plus I want to thank Mr. Rishi who told me to buy a GED Math calculator because it was the most helpful device for when I was studying for the math part of the GED test for four long weeks before I took the test on Monday November 16TH, 2009. I look forward to seeing all my teachers and of course my fellow graduates of the graduation class of 2010.
