Well, I graduated. What a load off my back (and mind) that is. My college career came to an end on May 10, 2019, assuming I don’t go for a graduate degree. The very idea turns my stomach, but I did find out that Masters degrees in creative writing are real, so who knows what the future holds.

More so than ever before. I’d never felt it this strongly.
