This is Commencement.

My favorite blog is written by TV Writer Ken Levine (Cheers, Frasier, lots of other things). (www.kenlevine.blogspot.com). He’s blunt and dry in a….. wet…. sort of way. Ha. I can’t describe the image in my head. Anyway. He’s hilarious.

His most recent post is one tonight with what he would say if he was asked to give a commencement speech at a graduation. His daughter just graduated from Northwestern — I’m guessing that’s part of all the thinking about graduation speeches.

My favorites….

“Have many romances. Fall in love when you’re 30.”

“Don’t blame your parents for everything. Your peers screwed you up just as much.” — hahaha damn straight.

“Save your journal or private diary. In 20 years you’re going to get such laughs.” — It’s funny but it’s really humbling, too. It brings to light that 20 years… is actually (preventing any like… unfortunate, tragic death) going to happen. And it’s not forever away.

Enjoy!
