Finals, Graduation, Life, Etc.

The academic year continues its drawn-out winding-down at Tulane.  Exams have been taken, portfolios have been turned in, theses have been defended.  Today was move-out day, except for those of us staying until graduation, who will be haunting campus for another week with vague concerns about this “real world” that everyone keeps mentioning.

Personally, I plan on taking my diploma either to a copywriting position in a marketing firm back home, or to the bar in Costa Rica where I will be waiting tables and growing a tropical goatee.  There’s no middle ground here, folks.  Maybe MFA next year?

As previously reported, our own Mark Clements and Philip Matthews will be embarking on their MFA careers, at Colorado State and Wash U, respectively.  Forgive the green tint of my skin–must be the light in here.

Whatever the case, college is done for now.  So long, undergraduate self!  Hello, alumnus self!  No more homework–now is the time for, well, real work I guess.
