Hard to believe, but in less than four weeks this little adventure called graduate school will be over. And what a great adventure it has been! It's a very exciting time. Also bittersweet (although, quite frankly, more sweet than bitter right now (I am so ready to be done)).
When I was considering this program, three years seemed like a long time. I was 33 then and knew I'd be 36 when I finished (which was much more reasonable than if I were 40 for some reason). I really wanted to go to graduate school but wondered if a two year program would be better. Yet this was the one that most appealed to me, so I made my choice. If I had known how quickly these three years would pass by, I never even would have worried about it.
Being here has changed my life, both professionally and personally. Coming here was one of the best, most inspired decisions I think I have ever made.
So many exciting, life-changing things have occurred during my three years here. I wish I had time to write them all here.
As for the future, I got what I believe will turn into a steady acting gig here. It's not what I want to do for a long, long time. But it's acting and it's income, so I can't complain. There are also things on the horizon, so we'll see.
Jonah and I seem to be doing well. I hope we will be able to get "married" and move in together soon. I guess time will tell.
Sorry I don't write more often. This semester, in particular, has been crazy, and I have also just been kind of lazy about writing. Hopefully I'll write more when life has calmed down somewhat.
