A massive white-out of blog posts is ended with these words:
The masters thesis, warts and all, is filed and very soon I will be walking across the stage in my silly black dress and backwards necktie (MAs get hoods - who knew?).
I'm still not thinking very well, but I think I could use a nice long nap.
I followed Jayfish's advice and got some ice cream - Mint Chocolate Chip, and it was so very very good. Ah yes, did I mention that I still have ~50 essays and an equal number of finals to grade by next Tuesday? No, I'm guessing I didn't. Oh, yes, then there's also the prep work and reader-building for two classes this summer that start the week after next. So, there's not even time for a debauch trip to Vegas. All for the best, I'm sure, but still.
My hopes are for quizzes and regularly scheduled blathering to be back up to speed by next week.
Oh, one last note of interest - One of the 'things I do' is shoot sports. I've been taking pictures for the athletics department here for the past couple of years, and, I've gotten a couple of good shots, if I do say so myself. Anyhoo, the uni I'll be attending in the fall has a massive sports program. They regularly compete and win playoffs of all sorts and flavors. So, I chatted with the Media relations guy here, and, guess what? He's got some connections over there. He says he'll get me an introduction and figures that I should be able to shoot down there too. Woohoo! Fun fun! Now I think I really may need that new lens :)
