My Masters degree is finally complete. I have officially graduated. The whole thing seems surreal. When you get your bachelor's there is so much build up. This time it was almost a let down. I took my exam that determined graduation a week before the rest of my classes ended. I had passed my exam, but still had a ton of work to do. So anti-climatic.
Add to that the fact that I am not participating in the graduation ceremony and you get this whole unfinished feeling. I know that I have completed my degree, but there is no closure. How can I create some? I guess I could have a party, but who would come. I would have a graduation party with maybe 8 guests. That wouldn't really help.
I think that this might just be the way things are now. Once you hit a certain age there are few major events left in your life. Adults just don't make big deals over things. At least not those without extravagant budgets.
So I guess I will just revel in the fact that I have some much needed time to do everything I have been putting off for months and months. There are doctors to visit, closets to clean out, resumes to write, and jobs to apply for. Perhaps there is not as much free time as I thought. With the little time I do have, I will try to be better about this blog. To be fair though, I did not have much to write about when I was mired in school work. Hopefully this time I will really mean it when I say I will write more.
That is if I can figure out this whole job search thing. The last time I looked for a real job I had a very specific job and very specific places in which to apply. This time the search is all over the place. I hope I can figure out the whole thing and land a job. A girl can dream, can't she?
In the meantime, if I do something interesting I will share it with you, my few dear readers. : )
