22 Genuine Fears You Have About Graduation Day
You’ve made it through the entirety of your degree to graduation day. And now the fear’s got you. 😰
1. That you’ll fall down in front of everyone.
2. Or worse, you’ll fall down and take loads of other people down with you.
3. And you won’t be able to get up and walk it off so you’ll just have to stay down forever.
