Well, we've come to that exciting time of year again where students who've put in years of hard work are finally basking in the light at the end of the tunnel as they cross the threshold of completing a major chapter in their lives, and now they feel like they can conquer pretty much anything.

The enthusiasm is contagious and those graduates' families and friends are certainly bursting with pride, but there is one last event to be reckoned with...the graduation ceremony. Yes, the gathering of all the loved ones to honor the accomplishments of the graduating class is one that will forever live in the minds of those in attendance.

However, there are some things that you graduates should keep in mind, lest your graduation turns into an embarrassing moment forever captured on YouTube.To prove my point, I took to the 'Tube and found five examples of epic graduation fails so that you may beware of the potential consequences.

Let's begin, shall we?

Walk with confidence, but watch your step

Unless you want to give everyone a good laugh at your surprised expense...

Secure your attire, and avoid doing cartwheels

If you have an outdoor ceremony, beware...

 

Don't be that guy who thinks he can pull off a backflip 

He sure makes all the heads turn, but not in the way the was hoping...

Save your dance moves for later

Because it's hard to watch girls fall on their face when they didn't have to...

 

Wear shoes that you can walk in comfortably 

Ladies, we all know how heels make you feel sexy, but if you get caught in this scenario, you're going to hate life...

 

 

Well, hopefully you learned a thing or two about the potential pitfalls, but if you're the type of person who can go for it, fail, and still shake it off, by all means...go for it! You could be famous!

Before I end this blog, though, I just want to say congratulations to all the graduates out there, and keep working hard as you set your sights on your next goal! Hopefully you make some awesome memories during your celebration!

Enjoy these moments!
