When it comes to graduation ceremonies I’m a bit of a curmudgeon, mostly because I don’t understand why most people are celebrating.
Mostly because our educational systems are failing us more and more every single year and preparing us less and less for the work force.
Then there’s the question of just how much friggin’ money it costs, leaving the majority of us in massive amounts of insane debt. It’s such a common issue that people have decided to lighten up their graduation ceremonies by decking out their caps with references to just how screwed they are.
But not everyone is a negative nancy like me and actually want to commemorate the day they’ve earned their degree by designing their grad caps without reminding themselves and others how financially screwed they are.
Like people who just want to honor a current 2018 meme.
And honoring a not-so-current Disney film and show that’ll never leave Broadway.
There are some students who kept their grad caps a bit more topical. My guess is that this young woman is a bit of a math nerd, or has a thing for sharp angles and precise writing utensils.
But there are people who managed to use new memes to charm up the very real worry of being condemned to a life of economic slavery.
Some people are just ecstatic that they’re finally done with all this college BS.
It wouldn’t be a 2018 joint if you didn’t rep Cardi B. either, complete with her trademark lip curl.
And while we’re on the topic of current, and important, culturally relevant artists, I present to you: the Post Malone graduation cap.
Some people had to go and get all inspirational with theirs.
Cheesy, I know, but we all love cheese.
We also love wise guys.
Oh, you thought we were done with Spongebob memes?
It’s always nice to see students give credit where credit is due.
The Disney references will never stop, ever.
But some people opted to rep superior cartoons.
There were some people who expressed why they were forced to get a degree, and didn’t pretend like their true passions didn’t lie elsewhere.
At least it isn’t as lame as this Star Trek reference.
Then there’s this beauty that Chance would probably approve of.
That being said, there are still tons of grad caps that lament the fact whoever’s wearing them is in tons of debt.
We feel your pain, we really do.
I mean if you’re going to get into a bunch of debt, you might as well have a sweet graduation cap to make up for it.
