I finally got my diploma from Eastern which was this whole drama. They
sent it to me via UPS but they required a signature. I only got the last
notice of a final delivery. Luckily I found the other notices in the
bushes because I was all set to call UPS and bitch them out. There were
some pretty wet and windy days so the notices must have blown off my
door. I ended up having to stop by campus to pick it up myself.

I kind of wondered why they insisted on sending it signature required
because who would steal a diploma? I mean, it isnt like it would have
any kind of value to someone else. It has my name on it after all. That
got me thinking so as a joke, I xeroxed it and then whited out my name
and wrote my name back in with a black sharpie so it would look extra
fake. But that was just something silly to do with it.

I ended up throwing the thing into the trunk of my car. That is where it
is now. I cant think of a thing to do with it. I suppose I could throw
it into a drawer or something. That is what I did with my high school
diploma. It seems kind of pretentious to display it although part of me
wants to because I get happy every time I look at it since it means no
more school for me.

Anyways, I am just curious. To those of you who have earned some sort of
diploma, what did you do with it. Where is it now? Do you think it is
pretentious to display it?

If your sister can display toilet paper at her job, you can display your diploma wherever you want. Though the toilet paper is far from pretentious- The diploma isn't really either. Mine is in a garage in California probably being used by a pack rat (other than myself) for bedding. Besides your diploma, Have you received the fresh squares? Can we have another graduation party in June?

Thanks Proshat and miner!

Shannon. Fresh Squares? I have no idea what that is. But we can have another graduation party in June. Let's have one for everyone we know who has graduated from anything :)

Yes I received them. YOU guys totally rock.

I never did recieve my diploma- My parents remember it coming in the mail but they don't remember what they did with it after that. It's been 12 years and it's never shown itself... Of course that same summer my sister came home to find hers already FRAMED... what???
I always tease my parents about it- definitely will get my moneys worth out of this one :0)
