I was walking to my 8am class this morning. The sun was out and the air was cool. It felt good knowing this was my last day. In an ironic sort of poetic justice way, it felt very much like my first day of class.
The M is currently showing a big 8…the countdown is on to graduation. This is it people.
I’m now, more or less, done with my formal learning mode. The next two days are comprised of final presentations and reviews. Today marked my last Analog and Digital Communication Systems lab and tomorrow starts the final round of classes1. Things are finally starting to fall into place, for better or worse.
There’s also rumors that the M starts counting down tonight.
I had an epiphany the other night while falling asleep: I’m graduating. You might think that with only a few days of class left, this fact would be a little bit more pervasive in my thoughts; but it’s not.
I also confirmed my Return to Work (RTW) day with Boeing. I’ll be joining the Real World™ on August 14th at 7am. One of the things I’ve always like about Boeing is that the “work week” (i.e. the start of the pay week) is a Friday.
For a moment this afternoon, I thought today was Friday and I was really excited. But then I realized it was Wednesday. The good news is that there’s no more homework due this week. The bad news is that I still have five days of school left.
