At Last!

Two days ago I turned in my final draft for my senior thesis. It felt really good to hand that off and I look forward to graduation on May 10. This will certainly open up a whole new chapter in my life and Stickley rockerI can now say, with some measure of certainty and relief, that I embrace this new chapter whole heartedly. I can also look forward to a relaxing summer in the comfort of my new rocking chair, a graduation gift from my parents.  It’s a gorgeous Stickley rocker, by the way, and the picture to the right is a good representation.

I think I’m finally starting to let it sink in as well.  I’m beginning to feel lighter as the graduation day approaches.  I’m trying my best not to sound like the “first person ever to have graduated from college”, but this has been such a monumental obstacle in my life.  It is a bit tantamount to my first half-marathon where I really didn’t think I would finish and many times I thought about just stopping, but I rounded the corner to the finish line and all those people were there cheering me on, even though they had no idea who I was and I sprinted (like I’d never run before) to the finish, nearly in tears.  And it was the absolute best feeling in the world.  Just now, I’m starting to feel that way about graduation.

Dare I even consider graduate school?  It’s a possibility, but not at the moment.  Let’s let this sink in and then we’ll talk.

See you in the funny papers!

Memoir tagged

Gleemonex (whose only discernable fault is an obsession with the hated Yankees *grin*) has deigned to tag me with a considerably difficult meme especially given that it’s taken me this long to simply introduce the damn thing. So here’s the rules for those of you wanting to play along…and those of you who have no choice because YOU’VE BEEN TAGGED!

1) Write your own six word memoir
2) Post it on your blog; include a visual illustration if you’d like
3) Link to the person that tagged you in your post, and to the original post if possible
4) Tag at least five more blogs with links
5) Leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

My memoir: Graduated finally; spent life in love.

That’s actually pretty decent. And now…MsHellion, Mar-cee-ah, Drew, Tiffany, and KyLydia

That’s all I have for now. I’ll write more tomorrow, I promise. I have to tell you about my school presentation.

See you in the funny papers!
