More on Counting Down

It’s been a downright thrilling week.  I wrote my last report of grad school.  I cleaned my apartment for (perhaps) the first time all semester.  I bought a dress for graduation! Bought my tickets to fly to the other side of the world this summer.  Panicked only a little bit about jobs.  FINALLY put up our ‘dinning room decor’ that’s been waiting since Thanksgiving to be hung on our newly painted walls.

And now I’m looking at my last week of school. Ever. There is nothing like being here.  I love it and hate it all at once.  School is such a big part of who I am.  It explains so much of my running commentary.  It serves as an excellent way to avoid undesired events.  And it’s where my friends are. So. I’m a bit nostalgic about finishing.  I have 2 more days of placement. 1 job fair. And 1 last final. And then…. ? and then it’s summer.

And I can see my summer now.  As with much of my life, it’s cyclical with insanity, ranging from days with only “find a job!” on my plate to traveling and hosting and traveling some more.  And really, that’s just the way I want it to be.  But sometimes I wonder how the reality will compare to my idea I have now.  I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.

As I have observed, things rarely are as they appear.  Here, even tar spots on sidewalks make art in SoHo.

  1. I feel as though I should offer my congratulations to you on finishing up school! I’ve never met you… but I somehow stumbled across your blog, and liked it, and continued reading it. (Is that creepy? Sorry if it is! I really enjoy your writing and thoughts!) Soooo… congratulations! Best wishes! =)
