It is finished. 

Four long years and about eleventy million assignments later and I have just submitted my very last ever assignment.  Actually it's more like about 63 assignments but it feels like millions.

I still need to get results back and commence five weeks of teaching rounds (I begin this Friday), but I don't expect any road bumps at this point. 

I kind of don't know how to feel now.  Empty?  Elated?  Excited?  Relieved?  Lost?  Maybe a little of all of those things.  This study thing has consumed almost my entire life for four whole years so it will take some time to remember what "normal" people do with themselves when they can just come home from work and do....nothing.  Oh, wait.  That's when people do housework and spend time with their families.  I think I remember something about that!

Miss Sunshine had a major "Done" moment last week as well, when she submitted her Studio Arts finals and journal.  What an incredible amount of work has gone into those amazing pieces, and the journaling.  And that focus statement.  Four thousand words.  The girl is amazing.

I'm off to do....I don't know what.  Work.  Read.  I guess I'll figure it out.  I might even get back to being inspired to cook again.

Congratulations on getting to the end! My Brianna has one assignment to finish then her 3 years of Nursing is over. She has a graduate placement sorted for next year at a public hospital. Those years have flown (I guess because she has been gone from home)!
Best wishes for a return to a bit of normality and yup, welcome to housework every day!

Congratulations! Enjoy the time to relax without the pressure of deadlines. I'd say enjoy the housework but that's just silly talk :P

Hi, I'm Jess said...

I'm new here so I'm not sure what you finished. I saw my husband through 6 years of uni, and now he is doing more, and we have a toddler. I dread the nights of cooking and cleaning when he's back at it. It's definetly been a joint effort. Good for you!

Just enjoy yourself and soak up the fact you don't have to do any study anymore!

Woo Hoo! Congratulations.

EssentiallyJess said...

Well done! How awesome that is for you!
I occasionally think about studying again, but at this point, I'm not sure what.
