Video: My Graduation Speech

Friday was the homeschool graduation ceremony for my area. I still have finals left and another graduation in which I'll get my real diploma. But I had a blast! I got to see some people I hadn't seen in a while, watch slideshows of good memories, and when I got home I was reminded of just how much I'm loved by opening a mind-boggling amount of cards, letters, and money (see photo). And yes, I gave a speech, which I tried to make as humorous as possible. I'm not very good at estimating that kind of thing, but I'd say the audience was about 2,000 in size... okay, maybe closer to 100.

Here it is:

GirlforChrist: The name comes from the fact that I don't have a cell phone, unlike the majority of other teenagers, or so it seems. So I joke that I rely on the chain of mountain dwarves to yodel my messages. Now that I have a blog, this is my "yodeling dwarf." Thanks for stopping by!
