All Choked Up.

Today I had my last fiction class. In reality, it's my last real class, even though I have photography tomorrow and then the final critique next wednesday. Today was my last "real" college class, in some sense.

I hugged my professor right at the end- I've had her for three semesters now- and got a bit choked up as she wished me luck and I coughed out "thank you" over the lump in my throat.

I almost always cry after good classes end. I've been doing it since my first semester of freshman year. Today I did again, and I hope it won't be the last time.

How odd, to be this close to finishing what has been, to this point, a lifetime of great classes.

I had my last class yesterday. And all I have left now is one paper, which I am hoping to finish tomorrow night. It's weird, but at the same time, I'm ready to be done with NYU.

Yes, I am SUPER DUPER excited to see you and hang out Friday night. Seriously, we're sitting at the same table at the banquet so that we can chat during dinner.

Love you. Mwah.

Thank you so much for the card, I can't wait to see you in May!!! I can't believe you will be a graduate by then-ahhh we are getting so old.
