and this tassel thing? i'm not wearing it for fashion's sake. that's right, baby, the tassel has been moved to the left, ceremony completed.

upon submission of my final research paper, i will officially be done with my bachelor's degree. i walked with about a hundred others today and got my official college alumni sticker along with the diploma cover they hand out...i was hugged by half a dozen professors, some i've never even had classes with but had association with anyway. i got a literal pat on the back from the college president, and had about a million pictures taken.

after all this time....i've finally done it. i'm proud of me.

that's good to hear.  It seems like it didn't rain after all, but I could be mistaken.

I guess it'll be back to job hunting than?
Or taking some time off and relaxing?

I suggest the second part if possible.

doesnt matter, they moved us indoors.

i'll be taking two weeks in austria, and two in canada, before i return to work and the search for a job.
Send me to Austria!

Austria can be a wonderful place to visit.
My grandfather's sister is in Klagenfurt, in a remote mountain region.
If you can take a small detour I suggest visiting Neuschwanstein in Germany not too far from Austria.

It's no small feat. I found that "real life" can be a lot more fun. It won't really sink in until next September and you don't have to worry about school-- you can just keep living your life how you want it.

Austria awaits.

Now: get thee drunk.

I am from a small, unknown country in the north called Ca-na-da. We are a simple, grease-loving people who enjoy le weekend de ski.
i tried by LilFlightTest (4.00 / 1) #8 Sun May 14, 2006 at 07:00:48 AM EST
the motivation to drink was strong earlier, but when it got to a point where i could, it was sorta not there anymore. you'll have to help me with that when i visit the schoolhouse in a few weeks.
Send me to Austria!

have not yet entered the real world. i know a girl in particular who still lives with her parents and our education system as taught her to be unable to know anything she wasnt told. she will have problems, i think.
Send me to Austria!

Not really.  Management enjoys people like this.

I went to Welsh Girl's ceremony Saturday. It seems she's in better company than previously thought.
