MY graduation. - June 27th 2010, 02:06 AM

I'm graduating from highschool on Monday, and my graduating class is pretty large so they have two rooms set up for people to come. 2 people that we bring can we in the actual room with us, the other 2 people can be in another room watching us on a TV screen.

Anyways. My step mom refuses to go to my graduation unless she can sit in the room with me so she can take pictures. So her and my dad are going to be the two there.

I'm FUCKING PISSED. I hate my goddamn step mother, she's nothing but rude to me. Her and my father haven't even been a big part of my life, I see them a few times a year. It's MY graduation and I would prefer to have my mom in the room, not watching it on a TV screen for fucksakes. It's a big deal to me that my mom is there, it's kind of an important thing you know?

Why should two people who are hardly in my life get to experience a really important part of it? My step mom gets pissy when she doesn't have her way and isn't happy, well you know what, it's MY day and I should get to be happy.

It's better to cross the line &
suffer the consequences
than to just stare at the line
for the rest of your life.

Why not just tell them no & have your mom come into your room with you then?

Yeah why not tell her no and have your mom in the room. After all it is YOUR graduation. If you can get it taped she can watch it from the screen at home if she likes.

just tell her that you'd rather your mum was there. that's totally understandable. if anyone tried to take my mums place i'd be really annoyed. its totally reasonable to want both your parents there to see you graduate.

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

Well, my stepdad is nothing but rude to me, and I did not have him at my college graduation ceremony. Why invite someone to show up to your graduation ceremony if he/she can only degrade your mental health?

Have your mom come instead of your stepmom, and ask your mom, dad (if you want him to be the second person present), or both of them to take plenty of pictures.
