It’s official. I survived the first year. Damn, does that feel good to say.
To make things even better, I got word today that the change that I was so hoping for on the assistantship front is, in fact, going to happen. I’m ecstatic.
I have this crazy feeling that I actually might like life next year, all things considered, which is huge. There were times–long stretches of time–where I wouldn’t have thought it possible. Man.
If I keep writing I’ll just repeat myself ad infinitum (good things happened! and how good that they’re good! GREAT!), so let me stop now. (GOOD!)
