My daughter graduated from college on Friday May 7th. Her mother and I had to sit in the football stadium and watch a live broadcast from the campus on the big screen tv in the stadium. The only thing that went wrong was when they played the national anthem, there were some hispanics sitting one row in front of us, 3 of them stood up but one of them, but the fourth, an overweight bitch refused. So I said loud enough for her to hear, "well if you won't stand up for our anthem, I will sing it for you", which I did. When the anthem ended some people around us gave me the thumbs up and clapped. My daughter is a young woman who has her head screwed on right. Very focused, hard working. Starts her new job June 1st. I am Sofaking proud of her. Even with losing my boy Cody earlier this year, it is shaping up to be a good year. New pup and my daughter graduating. I am a very proud father. Here is a pic of us from Friday. I am a lucky dog!

Most excellent and envious. Looks like a fine young lady with all of life's potentials ahead. Wish her all the best.

Our son elected to do one quarter and never bothered to go to classes. Told him we could not afford that, but that action let me retire two years ahead of schedule. He's thirty now and still doing entry level stuff.

I am happy for you and your daughter! (Sorry to hear about your dog--I've always thought it to be one of life's injustices that dogs only live such a short time relative to us humans.)

Good luck to you and your family!

Congrats to your daughter.

As a somewhat recent grad myself
Impress upon her start a Roth IRA with Fidelity or Vanguard ASAP and put $6,000 a year in if feasible.
401K to the match at BARE MINIMUM and even better if she can squeeze in as much as possible.

Congrats to you and her


Couldn’t even have a graduation ceremony last year for my girl, not even on a football field. Still hoses me off.

You don't look like you could sing worth a lick, but I expect you're a fine father and patriot.

Good on your girl there!

I hope she hits it out of the park during her chosen career.

Congrats Rem and to your daughter as well!

Our oldest just graduated college on Friday for a 2nd time en route to her dream of being a teacher. The first degree was accounting. She has been working as a para and a HS volleyball coach and took her classes online.

Pretty proud of her. She did all this with a full time job, a husband and a now 3 year old daughter. I get what you mean: Sofaking. smile
