For the last however many years, I would be mentally preparing to head back to school. Tomorrow, for example, is the first day of school at Chapman. Yet, here I am, writing an entry in my blog at a little past 1:00 a.m. Yes, the reality has set in. I'm finally done with my formal education.
Maybe it's me, but I think this is a big moment in your life. Of course, the cool thing to say would be that I need to go to work in the morning, but I'm not cool. I'm unemployed to be more accurate. Although, I have my reasons, namely going back home in less than a week for the majority of September.
I've been thinking that really getting ready to head to school with your pens, paper, and books is not really a "bad" thing. As great as the real world is, you have to deal with the harsh realities of life that you can avoid while still in school. Namely, what I call "The Dream". Unfortunately, for you the reader, I'm not going to discuss that right now. I'll probably touch upon it towards the end of September. All I know, is "The Dream" is now "The Reality" and it hurts.
So, good luck my fellow Chapman friends and everyone around the world. Enjoy your classes while I sit at my apartment and watch re-runs of "The Wonder Years".
