Happy Graduation to Me
I'm still a little too shocked to fully appreciate it, but I just took my LAST HARVARD EXAM EVER yesterday, and today I get to go to a mini graduation ceremony for folks like me who are a semester off (in case anyone wants to know, I spent my semester off loading trucks with packages at a huge UPS hub in Chelmsford, and no, package handlers don't get to wear that fun brown uniform). Then my mom is going to take me out for a martini. And then I'm going to take a really really really long nap. I know a lot of people are clinging to academia because of the lousy job market, going straight to grad school and all that, but I couldn't be happier to be getting out of here.
In other odds and ends, last night the boyfriend and I went to see law professor Randall Kennedy speak about his new book (Interracial Intimacies: Sex, Marriage, Identity and Adoption,) and were quite impressed.I'll have a further report when I finish reading the book.
Oh yeah, and a big thanks to all the nice people who have been visiting my site and reading my cartoons courtesy of August and Atrios. And an EXTREMELY big thanks to those folks who bought me books from my wishlist, you have no idea how happy you've made me--please do let me know who you are so I can be properly grateful, yes?
