This time of year, millions of students are graduating from their respective high schools and beginning the next chapter of their lives.

With this transition comes excitement, but it can also be a little nerve wracking. It's a bit overwhelming being thrust into the unknown after leaving the comfortability of high school.

The students at Portsmouth High School recognize this fear, but instead of running away from it — they take a note from Taylor Swift and Shake it Off!!

LOLz!

After shaking hands on stage and listening to class speeches, Cut Throat did what every millennial teen does today and Instagrammed a picture of herself after graduation with a deep message:

"Shout out, not just to all the 2015 grads but to the soon to be! Please remember knowledge is one of the most powerful gifts we have the privilege of receiving…don't take that for granted. To every soon to be grad, know that you CAN do it! (if I can get through it then anyone can😂) It's a long road, so many things will pose as obstacles in your way and at times the end seems further and further away, but please remember the importance of that beautiful mind you have and all the limitless powers you hold. All my love😘 #sorryforgettingdeep😂"

Z also got a pretty sweet shoutout from her good friend Tay Tay!

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Love Child With His Former Housekeeper Has Graduated High School — But The Terminator Star Was Nowhere To Be Found!

no title

Cue that Vitamin C song because it's time to graduate!

On Thursday, Joseph Baena, famously known as Arnold Schwarzenegger's love child with former housekeeper Mildred Patricia Baena, successfully obtained his diploma from Frontier High School in Riverside, CA!

What a HUGE accomplishment!

The 18-year-old was decked out in a blue cap and gown and wore several tassels around his neck, which may indicate he graduated with honors!

Smarty pants!

Unfortunately, the action star was not in attendance. It may have been for the best, as his presence would most likely take attention away from the ceremony.

In case you didn't know, the 67-year-old had an affair with Miz Baena in 1997 while he was still married to Maria Shriver.

However, it wasn't until 2011 when the existence of his love child came to light. The bodybuilder wasn't aware he was Joseph's father until he began seeing a resemblance throughout the years.

The politician and Patrick Schwarzenegger's mom divorced that same year, and are currently in the midst of divvying up their $400 million fortune.

Congratulations to Joseph for completing high school! May your future be bright!

The child genius's mother Taji shared that her son was always ahead of the curve:

So what's next in store for the college graduate? The ambitious pre-teen posted on Twitter:

This is shameful.

Columbia University student Emma Sulkowicz kicked up a storm of controversy by carrying her mattress to graduation. The art project/protest over her rape case has mostly been seen as a brave statement to bring attention to victims who are too easily dismissed.

But some at the school claim that Emma is capitalizing on the tragedy of others — and that her protest is nothing more than a hoax!

Posters have appeared all over the Morningside Heights neighborhood of Manhattan to discredit Sulkowicz, calling her a "pretty little liar."

The anonymous Twitter account @fakerape is being used to get the posters more attention:

Columbia University Student Carries Her Mattress On Stage At Graduation To Protest Her Dismissed Rape Case

no title

Emma Sulkowicz made headlines when she began carrying her mattress around Columbia University to protest the school's mishandling of her rape case.

And on Tuesday that protest culminated when — despite earlier rulings against it — she was allowed to carry the mattress across the stage as she graduated.

This is the culmination of a protest/senior performance art project entitled Mattress Performance (Carry That Weight) in which Emma must have the mattress with her whenever she is on university property.

Emma filed a complaint against another Columbia student in April 2013 for sexually assaulting her in August 2012.

When the University found the student "not responsible," Emma took her case to the NYPD, who chose not to pursue charges.

She has since filed a Title IX lawsuit against the school.
