Well, it's all done. I am no longer a student.
The ceremony was extremely long and tedious, but we had a really good speaker. There were over 900 people graduating from the business college, so it took quite a long time to get through everyone. The fact that we weren't allowed to shake hands because of the swine flu may have saved us a nice chunk of time.
After the ceremony, my family and some friends came over to my apartment. When I say my family, I mean my entire family, minus my aunt and uncle and two cousins that live in Arizona. So about 40 people jammed in my apartment, had some pizza and cake, and just kept each other company. It was actually a lot of fun and very low-key, which I liked.
So now, I'm in the in-between stage. I'm no longer a student, and I'm not longer employed. I'm trying to figure out the next step. I should be hearing back about one interview this week, but I'm keeping a lookout for something else. I'm also still considering more education and possibly even seminary. Those are things that I've been kind of pushing aside in my frantic search for a job, but they just keep coming back around.
I'm just going to keep praying, keep searching and try to enjoy whatever time off I have.
