"Who has a job lined up?" I don't remember, now, who it was who posed that question. A professor? A dean? A parent? A volunteer? It could have been anyone, really. I don't remember who specifically it was that asked, but I do remember that someone, whoever it was, posed that question to the lineup of graduating LAS students the morning of our graduation ceremony. "Who has a job lined up?" whoever it was asked. And no one at all could say that they did.   [caption id="attachment_75141" align="aligncenter" width="1400"] Undergrad college graduation in 2003.

I got an email from DePaul yesterday. They have received my request for degree conferral and are happy to announce that I have met the qualifications to graduate. Never mind that I applied for degree conferral in October of last year and never mind that I haven't attended a class at DePaul since November. It's OK though. The good news is that the government also doesn't think I have finished school till now and therefore I have another six months of not having to pay back school debt...

1. I am officially a master. OK, not officially because I still have to turn in two papers over the weekend and I still won't get my diploma until March because I am a slacker who missed the deadline. But I never have to go to school again! (Although I will be paying for it for a long, long time.) Joshua, who is apparently my only friend, met me at the wine bar to celebrate. I had lots of wine and raspberry beer. All you people who didn't come celebrate are bad people :( (insert valsadnoisehere) 2. I really need to...

1. He changed from single to in a relationship on MySpace. :-( 2. If I had to go see a naked magic show, the least JoeJoe can do is go see an educational Australian nature program. 3. After spending the night with the travel channel as they profiled Fiordland followed by Anthony Bourdain boar hunting in New Zealand...

THE GOOD NEWS: I am going to Chattanooga for the Krystal Square Off!!! THE BAD NEWS: Getting back from Chattanooga involves driving 10 hours all through the night and going straight to work in the morning. THE GOOD NEWS: Getting to Chattanooga involves stopping at some fun road side pit stops. THE BAD NEWS: I was so swamped at work today that I didn't get to go see La traviata. Hopefully I will be free enough to go watch La Boheme. THE GOOD NEWS: Since I do all of my work on a computer I can at least do some of the stuff at home. THE BAD NEWS: Since I do...

Last night was my first class of Humor 101 (OK, so maybe a little more advanced than that, as it is a 400 level course). Basically I am going to learn to be funny, but not necessarily haha funny. I already learned that it is OK to make fun of people who are "better" than you and that you can make fun of people who are in the same "group" as you. It's my last class of my Masters program and that is kind of bittersweet. I can't wait to not have school anymore, but at the same time, since my...
