To Our Pie Graduates of 2019

To Our Pie Graduates of 2019

I've always dreamt of giving a Commencement Speech one day. If I were to give one, I don't think I'd fill it up with all kinds of extra, emotional fluff. I'd keep it nice and short. Something simple and sweet. Something like: "Ya done did it" *drops mic*.
But then again, this is why I have never been asked to give a Commencement Speech. So, here I am. Commencing my speech on a platform where if I am judged, I don't see it in the direct form of facial expressions paired with a hot, blinding spotlight. 

 On a more serious note, I want to give my sincerest congratulations to our soon-to-be Class of 2019 Pie Graduates! Whether it's one of the many hardworking individuals on our team, or a face that we see here in the shop every once in a while, your efforts within the past years have paid off. We are so very proud of you! 

Now, graduation season is upon us - and that means bittersweet emotions. Maybe you're leaving a tight-knit friend group for the first time in a while, or your precious (yet, likely gross) college apartment that has been the home to many late-night fast food runs and parties. Maybe you just can't wait to actually get 8+ hours of sleep, and never want to pull another all-nighter again. 

Either way, I commend you (hence, my beautiful commencement speech). I commend you for staying up extra late to study for your finals. I commend you for stepping outside of your comfort zone and trying something new (whether it be an extracurricular, a cuisine, or a new type of music). I commend you for finding something you are passionate about, and following it wherever it would lead you throughout the course of your collegiate experience. 

I'm lookin' at you too, soon-to-be high school graduates. Even with a couple weeks to go, you are killin' it! The next time you are visiting the shop, don't hesitate to swing by and tell me all about your graduation plans. Are you taking a gap year? Any cool jobs or internships? Are you going to school out-of-state, or locally? Tell me all about your future plans over a sweet treat and a cup o' joe.

We want you to know that we'll always be here to treat ya, regardless of where you're going next. And if you're looking to celebrate, so are we!
