I am officially graduating with my MS in Technical Writing in mid-June. Classes are going for another two weeks, and then I’ll basically have finals week off before the ceremony the Sunday after. It has struck me today that I basically have three weeks to get my ducks in a row.
The ducks are of the “find a job and related such things” type, but there are also the ducks of figuring out what I’m going to write next. I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus as I rode out this final, extraordinarily busy term, and I’m glad I did it. My brain feels more rested. I don’t feel as wiped as I know I would have, but now it’s time to figure out what comes next.
There’s also that collection of ducks known as “final stretch of homework.” Those ducks, sadly, are getting the short-end of the stick because now that my oral exam is over, my entire being just wants to turn away from schoolwork all together. I’ll be making amends to this tomorrow and try to keep myself properly motivated until I put on the cap and gown.
