Class of 2010

I know many people have been wanting this post. ("HEY DAD!" "What?" "I'M POSTING IT!") So as you may know I have just graduated middle school (dare I say the BEST middle school) and next year I am moving on to high school. My graduation ceremony was phenomenal. So below for you is my graduation speech, which was said at the end of the ceremony. I wanted to post a video of it, but for some reason that clip won't upload. Instead I'll add a video of me walking across the stage and accepting my diploma. Enjoy!


Goodbye Speech
Molly Waterman

Hello everybody... Or should I say... Goodbye. Next year really is going to be a mix of nerves and excitement. We will not know where to walk or who to talk to. We are going to have doubts and worries, even if we don't show it. We're heading into the unknown. But then, I think about the times we had here, and how this school used to be the unknown.

We had come to M.A.T. because it has engaging and dedicated teachers. Fun electives. Good academics. A rock wall in the gym. But that is just what we saw on tours. When we first arrived here we could not have known the true gratitude we would feel towards this school at the end of these three years. So in sixth grade many of us did feel nervous and unsure. But Willy Wonka had once said, "You should never doubt what no one is sure about."

Early on seeing the wide variety of people and personalities here was slightly overwhelming. But soon we were able to find our friends out of nowhere. By seventh grade we were surrounded by groups of phenomenal people. We stopped doubting ourselves once we found how easy it was to meet extraordinary friends.

Hey I might throw in a picture of me and my best friend Jasmen looking gorgeous :)

School's Out

I'm hoping Molly will write a post about her 8th grade graduation the other night. But for the time being, given that today was the official last day for both Anna and Molly and I finished teaching last Wednesday, we'll let Alice Cooper sing it for us:

Early bday present

Here's what Stephanie bought me for my 40th birthday, which will arrive in a couple months:





















You can find more work by the same artist here. I've been following his career for a while and really wanted a particular painting of his a few years ago but decided I couldn't afford it. We later learned that it sold to the bass player for U2.

Anyway, the most recent show just closed and the artist hand-delivered the work yesterday. Nathan and our friend Jason came over while we hung it.

I really couldn't have asked for a better present. I love the idea that it's something that won't go away: it will be passed down to my children and grandchildren.

Thanks, Stephanie!
