It’s more or less official: I am done with my master’s! Exciting stuff, though I’ll only feel the real thrill when I’ve got that fancy schmancy diploma in hand. Actually, completing my last paper and giving my last presentation seemed anticlimactic; where were the fireworks, the dousing of champagne and jewels? Perhaps it was because I’ve only been going to school part time and still have a full time job to go back to that it seemed less exciting. In college, I had some freedom and rest to look forward to. 50 days until Tanglewood; now that’s definitely something to look forward to.
Eventually I’ll cull all the interesting and informative bits I’ve learned while getting my master’s and working…but for now, I’m going to try to bask in the sun.
