This week marks the last week of the last semester of my undergraduate career. I graduate with a BFA in 11 days. In 11 short days, all of the academia-related stress and turmoil that I have been subjected to for the past 17 consecutive years will come to an end. Why do I not feel lighter and more confident? Probably because it is a known fact that the real world is much more stressful and much more turbulent than the fake world of school.

Ah well, at least I will still have friends and family who I can hang around for awhile until I sort myself out. I want to engage in some grand celebratory gesture like going out to dinner, or travelling somehwere new, or even just playing the Sims 2 or 3.
