today was a great day. i left work at 4 and hopped in my car to go to school. only this time, i went to school not just for class but to order this:my graduation getup is officially on its way! i've hesitated for the past few weeks about whether or not to order announcements together with the mr. or separately. after all, the announcements are going to the same places and will show the same degrees. the ladies helping us today finalized the decision--we are going to share announcements so hopefully it turns out to be a good thing.
we walk in just 7 weeks and will be saying our goodbyes to everything school--adios tanner building, sayonara to late nights and the crappy music that plays in the library at closing time, peace to fighting for parking spots even with the little "g" sticker (last week i nearly took it out with this chick who cut me off to steel a spot and then starting mouthing and moving her hands at me like she had been waiting--ewww), and tschau to packed lunches and textbooks. can you tell i'm ready to graduate?
but it's not all roses. i keep thinking--what about the farewell to all those wonderful peeps who made life worth living the past few years. and what about football and basketball, and free food from the firms, and what will i do at a real job. i can't just say, "i've got school," and then bail. yikes!
it is time for a change, and i'm ready for it. i never knew it would feel so bitter-sweet.
