Life After Graduation
April 23, 2007

Saturday is my big day. It's the day I defend my thesis and take my oral comp exam. In other words, it's the day I officially finish graduate school. Lately, I have been hearing the same question over and over, "So what are your plans for after graduation?" Are you curious too? Well good, because I'm dying to share.

After graduation I'm planning to start a non-profit organization from the ground up. It will be focused on rural community development, and offer consulting services on a sliding scale fee schedule. I've already begun the application process for grant funding. During the development phase I should have some extra time on my hands. I hope to occupy that time by working in the ever-growing field of public financial reform. I can't wait for the opportunity to apply my theoretical knowledge to a real world setting.

Ummmm, JOKING!

Here are my actual post-graduation goals:
  • I'm going to take some "me time" and eat at Sonic every single day for the rest of my life. "Don't worry onion rings! Mama's coming to getcha!"

  • I'd like to stop feeding James M & Ms and Goldfish crackers for breakfast.

  • I plan to pay my electric bill that was due two weeks ago.

  • I'm going to clean the bathroom...possibly.

  • I'm going to catch up with my old friends from Harmony (in other words, I'm going to watch the soap opera Passions until my brain oozes out of my earholes).

  • I'd like to try to get James out of his pajamas before Jared comes home from school at least once a week.

  • I plan to return four very overdue library books and never pay the corresponding [outrageous] $50 late fee.

  • And finally, I'm going to change out of the grey sweatpants that I've been wearing every minute for the last five months (and take a quick shower before I change back into them).
No resume required to achieve these goals! Wish me luck in my lofty endeavors!
