Yes, it's true. I really have, finally, graduated. For years I have been styling myself as the "most educated, least degreed" person I know, thanks to my years and years of graduate work without a conclusive event (i.e., the receiving of an actual graduate degree). But no longer, because now I actually have a graduate degree. It's not quite the one I expected, earlier in my life. On the other hand, an MBA means you have learned some things that people will actually pay you to know, which makes for a nice contrast with linguistics.
I have many plans to fill up the empty hours ahead, now that I won't be sitting through three hours of Finance class on a Monday night, or eight hours of Strategies of Growth on a Saturday. The months ahead will include:
- Training the dogs for Good Canine Citizen certification.
- Setting up a Torah study website for the temple. I already have a design in my head.
- Planning the vegetable garden ahead of time this year.
- Organizing the basement, so I have room for
- Making Art.
- Translating Crónica de una Muerte Anunciada (because I happen to have a copy and it seems as a good a way as any to practice Éspañol).
- Writing more.
- And of course, vacuuming. And working to pay off that student loan.
