Last night, I slept 2.5 hours.

Today, I graduated from Western Washington University with my MBA. I am happy about that.

One hour ago, I said goodbye to two friends, who I think do not realize we will probably never see each other again, and – by extension – to a whole host of related people that I will not be able to get in touch with due to this.

50 minutes ago, I started walking home. It was a beautiful night.

40 minutes ago, I was enjoying the walk wonderfully, but realizing that I was developing blisters on my feet.

30 minutes ago, all that I could think about was the phrase “It’s time to go home.”

20 minutes ago, I was feeling happy that I chose to stick to the streets and not to walk through Whatcom Falls Park.

10 minutes ago, a raccoon bolted at me out of the pitch black into the little bit of light I was in.

I Just Finished My Last Final of My MBA

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

At 10:30 this morning, I started the last final of my MBA program. I was the first to finish. . . took me roughly 30 minutes, and when I stood up, I got a number of are-you-serious, you’re-actually-done-this-quickly looks. My answer – Yes, I’m done. I looked at the questions and knew all of the answers nearly by heart. It was prettty easy.

At the moment, I’m feeling an immense amount of satisfaction, relief, euphoria, and a million other emotions and sensations. I had a very similar feeling when I finished my first MA, but I was unable to share that with anyone because no one around me had ever gotten an MA, and I was the first in my program to finish. I’m really happy that I get to share this time with my classmates this time around.
