Growing up

I’m on the verge of graduating. In fact, I took my last final which I’m 100% sure I did well enough on the pass that last class I needed. Go me. I will soon be a master of science! Fancy that!

I feel like I spent five years in school learning, but not really growing up. There are a lot of things in the near future that I need to take care of that are probably simple for typical adults. As expected, I still find these things as small challenges to conquer:

  • Go on vacation, which requires a non-trivial amount of planning, despite the fact that it is a partly guided tour of Europe.
  • Buy a camera, which I just did tonight! (Panasonic DMC-LX3)
  • Find and rent an apartment.
  • Start working full-time.
  • Buy a car.

After finishing these, maybe I’ll finally be, as my office-mate Solomon puts it, “livin’ the life”.
