So, I just finished the last final, the last projects are behind me, and everything is all done. I'm finally finished with school. All done and graduated. Woo!
So... now what?
EDIT: To expand on the "Now what?" portion a little. I started taking classes again, part time, in 2002. That started as just one or two classes a semester, and the first one was a creative writing workshop type class. But since then, there's been a couple summers I didn't take anything, but for the most part, especially the last three years and a bit years, I've been taking at least three classes all the time, including summer. Now, it's all done, and I'm an engineer (even if the FE exam results haven't come back, I'm not worried about them) and even have a ring as a reminder of my oath to use my powers for good, and not evil
. But now, in a way, the easy part's over. Or perhaps, to use a different metaphor, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, and now that some of those first steps are done, I'm at that point where a bunch of paths diverge, variously traveled by, and I have to pick which to take, or to pick a bit of each and make my own.
