Graduation and Art is My Voice

Yesterday was quite eventful. Had both Graduation and ACMA's Art is My Voice art gala.

Graduation was pretty good. The organist is someone that I work with often, as she is our accompanist for things like Friday Arts and Juries. So, I wrote an Organ Prelude, which I gave to her on Friday. She was kind enough to play it yesterday as the first piece.

Other than that, my mom was among the graduating class, so I cheered her on. If ever there's a story of finishing college, it's her. thirty years of on and off of college and she is finally done with her degree. She's going to continue with a Masters, but I'm doubting that it will take another thirty years.

I wasn't too thrilled about having to wear the tux for only one song. Reason being because there's no chance to escape and put on normal clothes during the entire thing (which was about an hour and a half long). However, I was smart enough, this time, to bring a change of clothes, which I promptly changed into as soon as the service was over. Afterwards, the family went out to Olive Garden.

Straight from Olive Garden, I rushed over to the school. It's amazing how much people have changed over the years. I think what's more important, though, is what's stayed the same. I enjoyed talking to teachers and staff that I haven't seen in forever. I got to see some of my fellow alumni, as well as some of my good friends from way back when.

I must say that I was most delighted to talk with jennypennygirl, who I hadn't seen in a great while. We also happened to be standing by a painting of hers, which was quite impressive. Anyway, I was very thankful that I got to talk to her again.

Overall, it's still a little weird going back, but it was definitely worth it. I'll probably try to make it back annually. Oh, and I managed to find a piece of art. I picked up a pen drawing of a woman in full Japanese attire. It's very well done and I think it has a very strong and elegant character. There's also some Kanji on it which I'm going to have to translate after a while.

Once I got home, I dropped off my stuff and went over to my mom's house to hang out. Troy just got a Playstation 2 and the RotK game, so I tried that out. Honestly, it's a rather frustrating game, but it's pretty fun.

Today is Mother's Day, so I need to finish getting ready so I can go with my family to celebrate. Adieu.
