Remarks and not much content

Graduated yesterday. It was pretty great, and my diploma is enormous. It's really weird knowing I don't have to go back to classes in the fall.

I'm off to Rhode Island tomorrow, so the next post I make will probably be in a month or so when the internet is once again available to me. I'm really going to miss this new website I found, Explosm. Their comics are pretty funny, and they update almost daily. Sample below:

Cyanide and Happiness, a daily webcomic
Cyanide & Happiness @ Explosm.net


Anyhow, I'm pretty much packed, I just need to get all of my things in to the car tomorrow and be on my way. I'm staying in Philadelphia tomorrow night with Gwen, and heading the rest of the way on Wednesday. I always get kind of antsy around this time, because I'm ready to be at camp now, but I don't want to leave Gwen, and I don't really feel like doing the long drive up there. It's kind of like gathering motivation to walk to the comm center for free food. You know it'll be nice when you get there, but where you are is so nice too, and you know there's a long trip in between.

I don't really have much to say, so I suppose I will update again in a month on the joys of manual labor and working outdoors.

School's out, for summer/
School's out, forever

Finished college. I have been packing my stuff for the past few days, and today was the big move. It took most of the day, and I'm pretty tired, but all my things are currently in residence in my Dad's basement. It's kind of surreal, finishing college. I mean, it's the culmination of 16 years of school; basically my entire life to this point. It's probably going to be even odder come fall, when there's no class to attend.

So anyhow, college was nice, but I really have never liked school, and all in all I am fairly glad t be finished. It's nice to know that should I decide to get a Masters degree, it will be my own choosing, and will take a much shorter time than getting a Bachelors.

Graduation is this Sunday, and on Saturday I am spending my last night ever at Uber St, albeit on an aerobed in my now empty room, but I digress. A few days after that I am heading to Rhode Island yet again for the summer to work at camp. I'm going up earlier this year than in the past because I can make some extra money and I don't really have anything else to do.

I hope it is not too foolish of me to take off for camp again this summer, seeing as how I will need to find employment in the fall. My reasoning is this: I have a much longer time to find a job and live my life post college, and this is basically the last time I will be un-attached to school or a normal job. I have somewhat of a last opportunity to work there, so I feel the need to take it. I realize that I may be shooting myself in the foot somewhat, with having to find a job and apartment in the fall rather than the spring when things open up more. Oh well.

Things are nice between Gwen and I. We have been together two years in April, and at the risk of sounding sappy, I am very comfortable with her. I like the way things are going. Hopefully I won't have to go the whole summer without seeing her.
