…and done!

Today I submitted my final final paper of my final semester. Done is done.

Our celebration for local UMA graduates takes place on Saturday at URock. I’m excited in a strange, abstract way, almost like it hasn’t quite set in that, yes, I’m actually graduating. And yet it’s true.

Once I got that paper sent off to my prof, I jumped in to catch up on a bunch of bookkeeping I’d put off. Then I did some actual housework, vacuuming up dog hair and tumbleweeds of dust that have been wafting around the house for the last couple weeks. A gal’s gotta do what a gal’s gotta do.

But I also took some time to wander around my wet garden, reminding myself that it’s spring. Time for new beginnings.

    So, graduate school?

    Just kidding (for now). I did my first degree (BA English ’72) in ‘only’ 7 years, and when my adviser mentioned grad school, I nearly hit him! It was the last thing on my mind, until 20 years later.

    Sooo, congratulations is the transitional noun–from here to there. I wish you the absolute best in the myriad decisions you will be facing… One of the early ones will be: “When can we have tea and conversation again?” (I’ll call.)

    Great job, well done. And now for the next chapter…

    Congratulations! (To both you and Niall.) Well done!
    Your photo of little green things in rows inspires me to get put in my veggie garden and plant something.
