Shut up. I get that using Ke$ha lyrics to describe how I feel about my graduation from college presents a dichotomy. But, I can use “dichotomy” appropriately in a sentence. So that’s goo…you know what? Nothing makes that okay.
My point is that the weepy portion of the semester has commenced. Yesterday. I really thought I’d be okay. I finished my thesis. I printed it.
I took pictures of it. I even was okay with the nice e-mail my advisor sent me. I walked up to the third floor of Holton, and I was even okay when I put it in his mailbox. And…then I ended up crying in the stairwell.
I’m not kidding.
Not like huge, heaving sobs or anything, but there were definite tears. I mean, I freaking loved my thesis, guys and I worked so hard on it and I finished with the quote by John Paul II that says, “As the children of Abraham we are called Christians and Jews to be a blessing to the world. In order to be such, we must first of all be a blessing to one another,” and I remember when John Paul II died and I cried about that too and he was such a good man and I can’t believe I’m graduating from college and I don’t care that I’m coming right back this is devastating…and well, you get the point.
SO. That happened. And the floodgates? They’re opened. Incidentally, this is another reason why I won’t be pleasant during pregnancy. Once you get me going? I will cry at anything.
I cried at the end of a documentary about Pius XII this morning. Okay. It was five-thirty. And I was a teensy bit exhaustive. And it was beautifully done, man.
Don’t judge me.
