The papers have been turned in. The final exams have been completed. The editing has come to an end.
The cap and gown have arrived. The announcements have been sent. The party has been planned.
I graduate on Friday.
It still hasn’t quite hit me yet. I really planned my classes well this semester. I had a crazy few days where I had a project due on Monday, a paper due Wednesday, a tax final I took Saturday and Sunday, and then an in-class final exam the following Tuesday. But that Tuesday exam was my only in-class exam, which meant I was done on the second day of our two-week final exam period. It was incredibly refreshing to be finished while everyone else continued to study.
Now, I’m counting down the days until graduation (which can probably be better counted in hours now!), enjoying a lazy life until the start of my Bar exam prep course…which starts the Monday after graduation!
