Freedom - so close I can taste it.

I did it! The final assessment for the drugs course is handed in. I would call it workmanlike without being outstanding - it's really hard to be outstanding with a critical analysis of an issue in 150 words, just saying. And I probably won't get my mark for over a month, since they never seem to put up results till all the exams are over. Which kind of sucks if you do a course with no exam, that finishes before exams start.

Anyway, I am now intellectually free for the next 6 weeks, and the next course I do will be the last one, then I can call myself Educated. OMG. Coincidentally, my replacement copy of the DA:O expansion pack arrived this morning (the first one, which the YoT bought me for my birthday, had been stomped on in transit), and I have a copy of Mass Effect (the first one, cos I'm that awesome), as yet unplayed.

Today I am looking at how to go about actually graduating, and who is best to talk to about what to do next. Don't get me wrong, I really want some time off studying to be irresponsible and do other things and get over being sick of it, but I know already that I'll go back because I have something I need to do and academia is where that something can happen. Meanwhile, I've decided I want to go to the graduation ceremony. I'm the first in my family to get a degree, and Mum and Dad would have been there with bells on to be all proud n shit, so I'm going to do it for them - and for the people who've listened to my ranting over the years. First and last chance to point and laugh at me in a silly hat guys! PS I want a picture that I can point at and go "WE'VE GOT QUALIFICATIONS!"

Meanwhile, I feel another ridiculous tutu coming on. That I might actually have time to make.
