Nine Short Weeks

In nine short weeks...

...I will be walking across the stage towards a very special piece of paper.

...I will be done writing checks with phrases like "Tuition" or "Books" or "Parking Pass" in the memo line.

...I will be working. Just working.

...I will be going to bed at 9:30, or 8:30 if I want to!

...I will be missing the smell of new textbooks.

...I will be slowly forgetting how taking tests feels.

...I will be writing. For fun. And myself.

...I will be relieved. At peace. And done.

Yeah! Congratulations. You've worked very hard toward this. We'll have to party afterward.

That will be super great for you. I am proud of your perseverence. In 9 weeks, it will also be 10 days until Christmas, so having done away with all of the above (the smell of new textbooks will be one of the hardest to let go of) you will have time to focus on job, family and holiday at will.
