Intent to Graduate

I find rather amusing that I have to formally notify my school that I intend to graduate. Presumably most people who attend university intend to graduate.

But, hey, I’ve checked the boxes; I’ve filled out the forms. So, I guess it’s more official now? This impending graduation?

I admit, my feelings toward the approaching End of My Education are bittersweet. I so adore learning, academia, students, all of it. However, I also relish the idea of Free Time, mythical thing that it is, and I find myself nearly counting down to the end of this obligation.

Maybe I’ll be satisfied, when the time comes.

Maybe I’ll want even more to apply to a PhD program.

It seems that only time will tell.
