Own back, meet right hand

I just finished graduate school. About an hour and a half ago. Although it won’t be official until January 7, whenever someone asks me when I got my master’s degree, I am going to say “December 5th, 9-ish.” It has a nice ring to it. Send flowers and/or monetary awards to JB, c/o Jalalablog, Portland, OR.

Finishing grad school on a Tuesday in December is kind of like when I turned 21 on a Monday in Australia (drinking age = 18).  I am celebrating by sitting on the couch in front of the TV, drinking a 24-oz can of Bud Light. Pretty much the same thing I have done every night for the last 6 weeks. Yes, I have been suffering from the graduate school equivalenbt of senioritis. Let the healing begin.
