August 18th

I am approximately 60 days from graduation. My class at South Side of Town College ends late in April, with the final in the first week of May, and graduation at North Side of Town College is right around my birthday, the first week of June.

It's a bittersweet thing. It will be great to have gone through my self-described big, transformative year, especially if my GPA looks good. (Which it will, because I'm focused and capable now in ways I wasn't in undergrad.) It will be double-plus-great to be back in a "normal" relationship with Teslagrl, without the pesky distance. But it'll be sad, too. I'll miss my classmates, and certain of the undergrads I've bonded with.

Plus, I'll need to get on that GRE thing, and keep up with the application process I'll be starting even before I'm done here. It's going to be a whole new kind of tough, high-stakes mission. More on the line than ever before; less time to get it all to work out; closer to what I'll be doing for the rest of my life. Heavy stuff.

But it'll all be okay, because mid-August, Snakes On A Plane is coming out. I will make sure that I'm not supposed to be working that night; I'll clear my calendar of all else. I and everyone I know (or at least those who recognize the purity and joy surrounding this movie's release) will be in a cineplex, watching Samuel L. Jackson taser a snake in the face.

It doesn't have to be a good movie. It's already perfect. It's snakes, on a plane. You dig?
