Done. For now.

I finished the last thing for this semester this morning. I expected to feel elated. I get a whole month off! Instead I feel dejected and over-wrought. A chocolate cake or a big ol' margarita would not be out of line.

The oral exam/exit interview/paper defense this morning was a bit rougher than I'd expected. I'd rather someone just give me a bad grade than sit there and tell me to my face how much I suck. It felt neither productive nor constructive. Clearly I'm too sensitive.

Now I have one month to go for walks, read books, and garden before it starts all over again.

Congratulations on being done for now! I know that feeling of relief! I am sensitive at those kinds of things too! I always hated critiques in college - I take everything so personal. Always have.

Ugh, the interview sounds rough. I've always hated those. I vote for the humongo margarita! Woohoo, you're done!!

Congrats on being done!

I think you should head to the Sugar Pearl for one of their great desserts. (My daughter and I just had lunch there today to celebrate my semester and her college years being over.)
