Whats inside you ask?!

As soon as you open the BFE a choir of angels sing, as you feel the warm light of success brighten your face. Suddenly butterflies spread their wings and flutter out filling the room with a lilac scent. As you look at the folder you see all of your hopes, hard work, dreams manifest like fireworks exploding on the fourth of July with ice cream melting and dripping off you elbow. Childrens laughter is heard in the background then fades. Its like peeking into a Shangi-la during a festival on a warm summer night.

Then you hear your mother yelling at you to pick up your room.

Push Hard, Press Forward

My BFE came 4 days after the portal update. I'm guessing it depends on where you live. Besides the certificate, there is a letter congratulating you and there is also a tassel topper for your graduation cap.

I can attest that all this is true and my son still floats on air almost 2 months later! [emoji173]

DS Portal updated Feb 14
BFE arrived Priority Mail Feb 15 [NY to MI]
BFW was postmarked Feb 13

But don't assume this is always the case especially now with so many going out.

I suggest you dictate a novel while pushing hard and pressing forward from the bridge of your boat. That painted quite an image in my mind! :D

Wow tug boat! True literary genius. Did you sail the mighty Mississippi River with Mark Twain? :thumb:

Then the next day you realize that you have just voluntarily signed up for four years of something very similar to prison.

WP had the coolest little Pressed/printed cardboard square that you could put on your High School graduation cap so people sitting above you at gradation could see it

Then you get the graduation memo from the school with the dress code, etc that says you cannot modify your cap.
