Squiggy and Lenny are glad this school thing is overAs of this moment, I am done with everything. I’ve completed all the classwork I’ve needed to in order to earn my undergraduate degree. Did you hear me? I’ve now done everything I’ve needed to do to get my Sociology Bachelor’s with a Mathematics Minor.

And done feels good.

I’ll admit it, I cried for a bit. They were tears of relief, let me tell you. Working full-time and going to school part-time was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Hardest. Because I made many sacrifices I wouldn’t have had to make if I wasn’t going to school. And that is how I learned I could not do it all, somethings had to go. Which is okay. It was totally worth it.

And now I never have to take another college class again. Ever. I am not saying I won’t take another college class, but I don’t have to take any. I did think that maybe I’d get a graduate degree, or even a doctorate. And, the way I’m feeling now, that would be a no. I am crispy. Done.

What is on my plate? What’s next? Well, for the next few weeks I’m going to try to take it easy, enjoy a break. I have lots of projects ready for me to begin, but there will be plenty of time to do them in January and February. I’ll just keep blogging, hang out with the husband, pet the kitties, and start working on life after college.
