Default huge weight lifted off my sholders

i thought i would share this.. because.. well just because

today i took my last final for my masters degree... i am officially done with classes and have my thesis left to finish, which is half done. so as i submitted my last final i could feel my face/smile spreading ear to ear... i feel like i have 100 lbs lifted off my shoulders... and feel so good haha

then the fact im doing a double brew this weekend, which i cant wait for!

one in which is a barleywine, and should name it something related to finishing school, any ideas?

have any of you ever felt that good with something in your life?

now if it wasn't 2:00 pm in the afternoon, i would crack open a beer...

I know the feeling. I finished my final class for my B.B.A. last May, and it was an incredible feeling.

congrats, it's a good feeling to finish your MS. i completed mine in 2009 and will wrap up my Ph.D. next year... do you still have to defend your thesis?

Congrats. It is an incredible feeling. Is there some kind of heat wave going on up in Syracuse? My entire deck is still covered in about 3' of snow. It does make chilling easier.

Good for you! What is your degree in? That might help with the name-a-brew process...

It is amazing when that weight lifts off your shoulders, especially when it's been there so long that you've forgotten what life is without it! All the best, rustbucket!
