... Another town, and one more show...

There was surprisingly little shouting, jumping, hooting or hollering, all things considered. I guess you could say it went out more or less like a lamb. It was not nearly so much celebration as relief. But either way, the result is the same.

As the boys of Yes said (in case you're challenged in that area and didn't get the lyrical reference in the title): One down, one to go. I am now officially one semester away from being finished with grad school. Two classes and a little less than four months from now it will all be over. On the one hand it's kind of hard to imagine, since my life has been a certain way for going on three years now. On the other much larger, stronger, and more insistent hand, however, December cannot come fast enough.

Between now and Labor Day weekend, I am a free man (well, except for that whole work thing, which puts a bit of a damper on the freedom, but I'll take what I can get). I don't have travel plans this time, but I do plan to try and set up as many weeknight dinner meetups with friends as possible, since I can't really do that while class is in session.

Oh, and sleep. Sleeping will be good.

And probably some work on ye olde resume, just between you and me. I think it's about time to dust that off and polish it up.

But it is a definite relief, and I have a heavily-inked appointment for the shouting, hooting and hollering, and general carrying-on that will commence on or about December 10, 2007.

Yay! I don't understand how people can work and go to school. I can barely just work ...

gn - I couldn't either, until I started. If falls under It's Amazing What You Can Get Used To, I guess. It all seems fairly normal now, as bizarre as that probably sounds.

Just the fact that you used Leave It in your blog makes me dig ya even more.

inpy - Thanks. Actually, I can't ever hear someone say "one down, one to go" and not immediately have the Mental Jukebox start spinning.

Extra-cool YES geek-out: I have an a cappella version of that song at home, if you're interested.

Excellent - free, albeit briefly! December will come much, much faster than you think.

Lisa - I'm going to hold you to that. :)
