What is the Best Graduation Present for a Student?

You have been troubled almost every day by your commitments to school, wild awake for nights, studying at a holy hour when half of the world is comfortably sleeping, pissed off by your strict and inconsiderate professors, and what else? Name it! There are just innumerous things to cite, and yet the most unforgettable experiences in school life are those that have made you become an equipped person. Prove once more the old cliche “No pain, no gain,” as you proudly reap the fruits of your labor.

The day that everyone has been looking forward to finally arrived. It’s Graduation Day! And do you know what makes it more exciting for the anticipative students? You got it, don’t change the first idea that popped out in your mind; it’s the presents! It’s not just about the outfit you would want to wear on this grand day nor the gathering of your dear loved ones that brings you eagerness. Let’s not be hippocrites and accept the reality that whenever graduation is approaching, majority of students become preoccupied with favors which they want to be entitled with as they ask it from their parents, or from whoever is capable of providing their caprices. Face it, it’s a normal and expected nature of man - to be compensated for a job well done.

For a while, set aside the ‘wants’ you desire; perhaps, try to forget about the latest gadgets you want to buy, the out-of-town or out-of-the-country vacation reservations, and the exclusive treat at a fancy restaurant. Instead, ponder about the gifts laid readily before your naked eyes, even without you asking for them. Instantly, you could just simply prepare for the big day, and seize the one-time glorious event. Find the joy and relief of coming to an end and starting a new beginning. It’s a huge pay-off day for every aspiring student! Who wouldn’t want to walk on that stage, claim their diploma as if they have won a major award for performing well in school? Say, for students with honors, it’s a real high time for them to be put into the limelight during graduation; but, Graduation Day is for every deserving student who worked hard to get through to this point. For the sake of fairness and granting the essence of graduation, let everybody enjoy it! The euphoria that one gets by the time his/her name is called and acknowledged as a certified graduate in front of a crowd and in front of the people to whom the achievements are dedicated, that’s the very same time when one receives the best graduation present ever!

Truth be told, the most rewarding things in life do not always come in monetary or material forms. Unfortunately, it takes decades for other people to fully realize it.

Remember: You are always free to have the best presents in life, not only as you celebrate graduation, but also as you live the rest of your life. It’s only a matter of recognition and appreciation. (See, you could already bag two awards without needing much effort.)
