I finished all the requirements for my B.A. yesterday morning. Phew. That was a lot of blood, sweat, tears, and moolah. Now just to get the paperwork all squared away. Which is a whole lot easier than trying to study for exams. I think.
Oddly enough, I don’t feel as relieved and happy as I thought I would. Oh, I was elated for the first hour or two after the exam. But after that, I seriously felt like I had the flu. Just utterly exhausted, body aches, the whole nine yards. Got up this morning feeling a little better but still very tired. Worked on a few projects here in the apartment. But really, I feel more adrift and lost than happy. Maybe even a little depressed. What now?
Dh says I need to chill out and take a few days off. Maybe I should. Maybe I should just stop worrying and trying to have the next five years of my life planned (haha, did that once…and about 2 years into it realized I was way, way, way off track…and had no desire to go back to the plan) and just enjoy the simple things again. I feel like I haven’t been able to do that in a long, long time.
Take Timmy to the dog park one morning this week.
Savor a cup of tea. No glugging.
Write in my long-neglected journal.
Get lost in a good book (Labyrinth is looking to be a good candidate).
