    That was my last class in my BSBA. I am done. I need to wrap up financial and then I get the "paper". WhooHoo!

    I am going to have a drink! Maybe a cigar. lol (But I think the tobacco shop is closed) ok, menthol and a drink!

    I thought It would feel different.

    I have that song off Les Miserables running in my head..

    I have a few friends that I wish were here.

    There's a grief that can't be spoken.
    There's a pain goes on and on.
    Empty chairs at empty tables
    Now my friends are dead and gone.

    Here they talked of revolution.
    Here it was they lit the flame.
    Here they sang about `tomorrow'
    And tomorrow never came.

    From the table in the corner
    They could see a world reborn
    And they rose with voices ringing
    I can hear them now!
    The very words that they had sung
    Became their last communion
    On the lonely barricade at dawn.

    Oh my friends, my friends forgive me

    (The ghosts of those who died on the barricade appear)

    That I live and you are gone.
    There's a grief that can't be spoken.
    There's a pain goes on and on.

    Phantom faces at the window.
    Phantom shadows on the floor.
    Empty chairs at empty tables
    Where my friends will meet no more.

    (The ghosts fade away)

    Oh my friends, my friends, don't ask me
    What your sacrifice was for
    Empty chairs at empty tables
    Where my friends will sing no more.

    Hi Decki, Congrats!!

    I worked so hard the last 2 years to finish up my degree, I felt more relief than joy at the end. It was rather anti-climactic.

  • Sparkplug

    Exactly. There was so much that has happened since I started.

    So much.

    Someone asked me tonight what I was going to do with it.

    (I thought to self...."pay for a long time"...)

    I think I already have put it into action with starting my own business. Now to get very serious about it. hhhmmmmmmmm.

    Congratulations! Hip, Hip, Hooray for you and your intestinal fortitude!

    I would agree about the relief vs. jubilance. I think you'll feel that jubilation when you're faced with a problem and you realize you can answer it based on the info you learned while getting your degree.

    At least take a week off before you go and start a business. I think you’ve earned a few days of lounging or drinking or both... or just drinking.
