Commencement. An odd word for it. It's probably called that to put a perky spin on what is really happening. If they called it "Endment" no one would come...

Except, of course, your parents. They have been waiting for you to commence for a long damn time now. They want you to commence looking for a "real" job, so you can commence taking care of they can commence those golden years they promised themselves.

And the government - it wants you to commence as well, so you can commence paying taxes like a responsible adult, and commence paying those loans back, too.

They should call it "Dismantle-the-life-you-built-over-the-last-four-years-ment."

This is when we commence growing apart.
It's when we commence getting old.
Very soon we will commence looking back.

(If you are feeling the urge to commence writing a little note to Linus regarding the positive changes that will commence with the end of this semester, don't bother. He doesn't want to hear any shiney happy crap right now.)
