Hey, I'm 100% done with school!!!

At Greg's request, I took a bunch of pictures (with a little help from my Dad) and I've put them up in my not-often-updated Flickr Account. So people should head over there to see what's been going on for the last couple of days.

The Pratt Show went really well and I made some good contacts, and got to see some friends and teachers.

Graduation was a little weird because it was out on the Brooklyn Campus, which I had only been to ONCE in the last two years. All of my classes were at the Manhattan campus, so having this big ceremony out there felt oddly detached from my actual school experience. Ah well, it was a beautiful space, with lots of huge sculptures and TREES!

The graduation itself was a little tedious (as those things tend to be) but my Dad reminded me it's not for the students, it's for the friends and family! The threatening rain never materialized, so that was good.

So yeah, I don't know. It's been a little crazy, especially with my parents in town, but it feels really good to have it all done. This one little week has somehow felt like a WHOLE MONTH!

Meanwhile, a lot of random projects have popped up in the past couple of days. So I don't think I'll have any trouble "hitting the ground running" like I wanted to! I'm going to hang out with my parents and my friends this weekend and then wake up on Monday morning and get back to work!
