This weekend I attended a high school graduation. At least once a year, in my last three years as a reporter, I've had to cover a graduation or two, whether it be for a high school or a university, and every year they bum me out. I know it's totally silly, but with three under my belt and no more in my foreseeable future, I kind of resent new graduates. I think to myself, now that I'm through high school, my undergrad and my master's, when will there ever be another party just for me?
I know the obvious one for ladies my age is my wedding day, but honestly that will never happen. I refuse to walk down the aisle. I refuse to wear the dress or sign the papers. I just straight-up refuse to do any of it. It's not for me. Just like babies aren't for me, so that rules out a baby shower. So I ask you, when's my next party? When are people ever going to celebrate my accomplishments or my life? It just seems like now that I'm out of school, my life will forever more - at least until retirement - revolve around a job. And with jobs there are very few celebrations of your work and if there is a celebration, it's probably just a pat on the back, not an excuse to get dressed up, eat delicious food and drink delicious beverages with all of your friends.
So anyway, I guess what I'm asking is, does anyone want to throw me a we love you because you're awesome party? I think I'm almost due for a celebration. If it makes it easier, it could coincide with my birthday. But it really doesn't have to. Anytime will do.

UPDATE: This post was meant to be comical, not pathetic. Sarcasm fail! But thanks anyways to everyone who has commented with celebration ideas.
