DIY Graduation

March 19, 2011



Some of us got a message like this today:

“Today was actually supposed to be graduation day.”

Some of us look forward to the day when we have all sorts of different kinds of learning spaces that are ‘normal’ instead of the academic industrial complex.  

But for now we also know that some people feel sad today.

Maybe you think it seems petty or inappropriate to feel down about graduation in light of everything, but we know you are sad about it anyway. That’s okay.

We are sending you hugs.  

We hope you try to make your own DIY graduation ceremonies.  Make your own speeches and make your own graduation song.  It will be better than the official one, we know.  Maybe you can do it with friends.
