We just wanted to take this time to really thank all of our customers for making this such a successful graduation season for us! Without you, we really wouldn’t be here. We’re also really happy to announce (*knock on wood) that this season, we have had 0 missed deadlines and had 0 late deliveries with our graduation stoles.
We wish you all the best with the career paths you choose and hope you enjoy your summer!
With that said, we recently found a few interesting posts around the internet. Most specifically there was one post written specifically for graduating seniors at the GetRichSlowly Blog, “Life After School: Advice for New Graduates.” The post is filled with great tidbits of information, from financial advice to career and time management tips. Not too long of a read, and definitely worth a look.
One point that we particularly liked was:
Treat your time as an investment. It’s more important to invest your time wisely than to invest your money wisely.
Time is such an important factor in the “real world” because your life isn’t dictated by term papers and finals. It will be a big adjustment as you will see, and if you are taking on a 9-to-5 job, no doubt the amount of free time you have to hang out with friends will drop. Spend it wisely and enjoy! Need some motivation for time management? Check out the 4-Hour Workweek.
Talk about a weird story, it seems that many students from McKinney High School in Texas got more than they bargained for from this year’s yearbooks.
School officials say they are appalled by altered photos – including heads on different bodies – in hundreds of McKinney High School yearbooks delivered this week.
Besides the head and body switching, some necks were stretched, one girl’s arm was missing, and another girl’s head was placed on what appeared to be a nude body, with the chest blurred.
Full story about the yearbook photoshop fiasco (Yahoo! News). We hope they get the revised version printed and back in time! If there’s one thing great about high school yearbooks, it was the last 10 minutes of each class period where teachers would let you sign them! Not to mention BFFs reserving full pages in your yearbook to write “Have A Great Summer!”
We thought this comic was too funny not to post and just a reminder to never lose that drive after graduation.
If there’s one thing that I remember from my own commencement ceremony, it was when our chancellor (or was it the keynote?) said “Commencement is not the end, but rather the beginning. That is why it is called commencement.”
