Three Credits Closer

As of 9:00 p.m. last night, I am three credits closer to finishing my degree. That means I’m exactly one quarter of the way through the program.

This class, Positioning, was my favorite of the three I’ve taken so far, which made it a lot easier to dedicate a good chunk of my summer to it. And we ended on a high note. Because the summer term is condensed, our last two weeks have been very intense. We each did a big fat presentation last night about how to bring more visitors to New York City, and I was proud of how my group did and what we put together. I liked the people I teamed with (not something you can always say about working groups), and the rest of the people in the class were all great, too. There was a feeling of camaraderie, and everyone (save the one sad sack in the group) went out for drinks together after class. Our professor and TA even came. And our professor even bought a round! It was a really fun way to end the semester and was a nice reminder that there are a lot of personal/social benefits to this adventure as well as academic/professional ones.

As good as it was, I’m glad that it’s said and done now. I have six solid weeks of no school, and I’m planning to appreciate the free time. Bring on the novels, dinners with friends, and weekend getaways!

I'm so stinkin' proud of you! And I'm glad that the experience isn't solely academic.

And well done, you for getting the prof to spring for a round! :)
