So, how does it feel to be a graduate? Given the current circumstances of the world… it’s not that great. The job market is tough and shows no signs of getting any better anytime soon. I often ask myself, how does one find a ray of hope in this trying time? The answer is simple: at least we have each other. I know that sounds like a cornball line, but it’s true. We all have to pull each other through this tough time.
Now, to the ceremony itself last Saturday. Friday night I got a stomach bug somewhere. Saturday I was nauseous and diarrheal. I barfed during the ceremony. That’s right, I barfed during the ceremony. Not the most dignified of moments, that’s for sure. But, I take it in stride. With as much hell as I went through with numerous departments of this university, I can say one thing: it could be considered payback of sorts. Mind you, it wasn’t intentional, but it was kind of fitting and fulfilling, nonetheless.
Still no word on that job… I’m going to call about it the first of next week to see what’s going on. Knowing my luck, Bonten probably cut the position to save on the stupid budget, but we’ll see.
