i did it :)

You guys. 

Remember my long-time dream of going back to school for a second degree? Remember when I started back to school, in 2009?

You can click that "school" label
on the right if you want to know
all the other details.

But here's what I want to tell you.

You guys!

I finished the last paper of my degree
in the middle of the night last night. 

Left this note posted for Spike. 

He left at 4 AM for work, but left a reply. 

I spent this morning proofreading the living daylights out of it. 

And I just pressed "send" with it attached, to my prof. 

I DID IT!!!!

I can feel the joy from here! What an achievement that is; I'm so pleased for you.
When I complete a running race I celebrate by eating something with an outrageous number of calories, because I am so controlled in my eating before the event. I wonder what's an appropriate celebration for you . . . what have you been depriving yourself of during your school years?

old_black - thank you :) My celebration so far is ... sleeping until I wake up WITHOUT an alarm ... today I woke up at 5 AM, so I must be caught up on sleep ... AND ... READING WHAT I WANT TO!!!!!

I have a whole pile of books that have been just waiting for me to have the time. :)
