I just uploaded my research paper -- the final assignment of my undergrad career.
It feels so momentous!
On one hand, I did the math last week and realized that even if I got a 0 on this paper, I'd still have a C in the class and would therefore be graduating regardless. On the other hand, now I really feel done...and I most definitely didn't half-ass this last assignment. I'm pretty proud of the way it turned out.
So I guess this means I have crossed the finish line...but it'll be another two months probably before I get the "medal" for this race. I won't actually refer to myself as a college graduate until the 10th, but I am definitely looking forward to updating my resume and removing that "anticipated graduation..." caveat right away.
It only took me seven semesters to complete my degree, though it really feels like I've been at this much longer. AND if I keep on my current trajectory, I should have my Master's completed in six semesters more.
