Triumphant


So this is a good week after all the good news winning awards and stuff.

I am happy to announce that I have finished one of my theses. It's nice to have it done. I now have a 47-page paper on Romeo and Juliet, and that's nice. I think it is a good thesis, and I don't think that anyone has talked about the stuff that I am talking about or done the things I am doing. I'm really just happy its' done though.

I feel like all the sacrifice, and there has been a lot coming back to the states to finish an education. is finally really paying off, and I can start to be happy about it. I still have my German honors thesis to finish, but my English honors is done, and I am going to graduate for sure, and that's a bit of a relief I guess. . . or something.

I am rubbing my eyes trying to think about how I should articulate the way I feel about graduating from UC Berkeley as the first generation of my family who will graduate from a university of any kind. But I have to give myself some more time I guess. I am still adjusting to the fact that I will 100% be finished in a week. A week.

My dad got choked up about my being the first in the family to graduate from college. (I've sure demonstrated the amazing places that can take you!)

A Shakie man, are you?
