The Class of 2018 graduated yesterday. It was a gorgeous, breezy, sunny day. The student speakers gave lovely speeches (the last one, made by one of my APUSGOV girls, called on everyone to work to change immoral policies- ie separating families at the border- and got a standing ovation).
A few hours after the ceremony ended, Project Grad began! It was SUCH a fun trip: bowling, laser tag, and bumper cars at Dover Bowl; trampoline fun at Blitz Air; a party cruise in Boston Harbor; an early morning at Storyland. On the bus rides in between, I played DJ and raffled off Amazon gift cards (anywhere from $20 to $100). I have to give props to the parents who did the fundraising and planning for all of that!
It is bittersweet to say goodbye to this big-hearted class, but as I said before, the wide world is going to be so lucky to get to know them next!
Another great night at the shittiest of dive bars ❤️❤️❤️
I’m working on a bunch of comics I’m not really ready to share. This is one from a series I’m working on about going to my wife’s high school reunion.
Most of the time, I know I suck… and I’m always trying to find ways to be a better person. One of Ellen’s former classmates helped me out a lot with at least one small thing I can work on by being direct about it and it was very helpful.
