Let's get up to speed, shall we?
I've been gone for oh so long but that's cuz I been busy!! I finished my finals, gradumacated, said my goodbyes, moved my stuff out for the last time, drove home and unpacked it all again, this time with the weird finality that comes with knowing I was never going back.
CE's b-day gift showed up THE DAY BEFORE GRADUATION. Jeez, way to cut it close postal system.
Yes, its a crocheted Dr. Manhattan plushie. And before you ask, yes, it IS anatomically correct. As if I would give anything otherwise.
Meanwhile I purchased my cap and gown-
LIKE A BOSS
Then there was the main graduation, which was boring as hell and I spent it murdering my tiny digital minions on Pocket God on Javi's Iphone. Oh, and wearing a pretty princess crown.
Then came our special nerd-centric graduation, where the student speaker was none other than our favorite comic-writing fangirl, who mentioned me personally by name in her speech cuz I'm awesome like that. And even though I opted not to sully the moment where I got my diploma and hugged my professor with my princess crown, I kept my other modification to my ensemble.
Oh, and I (along with all three of my roommates) won Outstanding Thesis awards. Can I get a "hell yeah!"?
And then, finally, I left my room at the HC for the last time. It feels so weird, and scary, that's a given. I spent four years living in this place, learning and making friends and connections that will last a long, long time. It's scary as hell to be leaving all that behind. But it is exciting to start a new chapter of my life where I may make my own way in the world. But you don't care about that!
WHAT YOU DO CARE ABOUT:
It's summer time and Sugary Cynicism is back to operating at full power! The return to everyday updates, movie reviews and general fangirling has begun! ...Tomorrow!
For now, here's a new banner quote. No cheating ;)
This is Sugary Cynic, back for good, but coming back different. 'Night!
