I graduated yesterday.

Since I took 8 bloody years to finish my Honours BA, I knew only 2 of the 450 other hooded&gowned people at Con Hall. It felt as if I was finishing something that I had already done. And now there's a framed diploma with my name on it leaning against the wall in the living room, and my parents, I suspect, feel relieved and also old, and suddenly I feel the need to Make Decisions and Contribute.

I want to own a bookstore. I also want to go to med school. And I really want to finish all the bloody fic that I've started and then let languish.

The last, at least, I can work on today.

It was a grim haul, but I'm through! (and promised that I wouldn't hang my diploma in the bathroom, which made my parents laugh nervously.)

It's nice to be free... relatively speaking. Me and the ivory tower didn't get along that well -- I'm not Rapunzel; I like earthy things; and deadlines suck. So! Am done! Can now write fanfic all day (when not at work)! Yah!

I'm trying not to get homesick for the ivory tower. Fanfic is helping. :-)
