Cloud Twelve

13 Oct


Last Friday at approximately 8pm I finished my final final ever.
Grades are still pending, but I know that I passed the class, no to mention the fact that I am cleared for graduation. 
(Side note: there is no December commencement for fall graduates. I have to wait until May to walk which kind of bums me out.)
Since Friday I’ve been flying high, on cloud nine, sometimes cloud twelve, and really just embracing the fact that I do not have to do homework anymore.

I. Am. Free.
I still don’t quite know what to do with all of my time which I’m ok with. I’m a lovely contradiction of wanting to stay busy but also sit back and relish in this accomplishment.
So for now, I’m taking it slow. Enjoying my nights free from classes. Planning weekend trips, afternoon dates with friends, skype dates, organizing/cleaning my living space, spending more time with Jack, enjoying real life conversations and re-entering the world of the living.
It feels amazing.

I have so many posts swirling around in my head but with all the lovely, amazing, positive things going on in my life I can’t seem to settle down in front of the computer long enough to focus.

I can’t thank all of you enough for being so supportive over the last few years. I am working on a “Thank You!” Giveaway which I hope to have live before the end of the month.

In the meantime, I’m jumping for joy and in celebration!

    So, so proud of you, Nora! It makes me happy to read this because I can tell that you’re so happy. We need to schedule one of those skype dates or just an old fashioned phone date since my computer is currently in the repair shop. =)

    Yes yes yes! You did it!!! I’m SO proud of you!! :) And we should definitely have a skype date soon! (Although skype is weird on my computer so maybe g-chat instead?)

    Yay! So happy for you – you’ve worked so hard for this!!! It is hard to get used to the feeling of not being busy but it’s important that we enjoy that feeling when it’s there, I’m sure your life will be super busy again soon enough!! :-)

    I am jumping for joy for you as well! It is the best feeling ever, isn’t it? It probably won’t *fully* hit you until the time of year when you would normally be registering and/or buying books.

    I have to say, I do not miss school. Which surprised me. But grad school + working full time did me in… I love that the homework cloud does not hang over my head anymore.

    And I really think your schedule is goign to fill up faster than you think. Now you can make plans with friends. Plans with family. You can schedule weekend getaways w/out consulting with your syllabis to see how stressful it will be to be gone that weekend. you can seek out volunteer activities. You can lay in bed on Sat and/or Sun morning.

    It’s fabulous, my dear. :)

    YAHOO! I am so excited for you that you are DONE and are free! It’s an amazing feeling, huh?

    Hopefully, we’ll get to hang out before you walk across that stage. (:
