This is the pace that I and 117 other girls must march up a hill. No, we are not going to war, we are simply practicing for our Graduation Ceremony. However graduation is not that simple. Try taking a twenty minute march up a hill, at a slow pace, to Pomp and Circumstance. Now add high heels and the scorching sun. Today was only the second practice. There are still five more long practices to come, and it is supposed to be 92 degrees out tomorrow. Let's just hope it doesn't rain on Graduation Day after all our hard work.
