With all endings come beginnings. Such is the endless trudging of life.
I was going to write up a shitty metaphor about a marathon runner, but it didn’t quite make sense. Failure aside though, I did manage to graduate today! Finally I am free from the shackles of institutionalized learning! I can finally rest easy, knowing I will likely not be formally tested against my will again. Maybe that’s a naive worldview, but at least it’s a point of big choices again.
But as it happens, those choices have already been made. I can roll on through to that mythical next phase in life without much trouble, I’d say that’s a good sign. Two weeks downtime to do as I please, and then the real fun begins. My internship company is currently writing the contract, we’ll be in contact even more often from now on.
What a ride it’s been. Drinks and other consumables are on me tonight, but don’t go too crazy, the party continues tomorrow.
