40.

The last few weeks have involved lots of picking up…

Commencement tickets a few weeks ago.

Commencement Ball tickets last week.

My cap and gown today.

It’s so surreal to think that in just over a month I’ll be in the Commencement tent.

With warm weather here, I just want to sit outside and let the sun embrace me. Instead, I’m holed up in the library writing my thesis. Which, (fun) I’m presenting at the Religion and the State conference this coming weekend here on campus.

In grad school news, after being accepted to King’s College London, University College London, the New School for Social Research, University of St. Andrew’s (and a whole bunch of others), I had a slight panic. Usually people have no options and freak out, instead I had too many…

I’m pleased to announce (for those of you who haven’t yet heard) that I’ve decided on the University of St. Andrew’s in Scotland! I’ll be shipping off to the land of kilts and deep fried Mars Bars in September for a one year M.Litt in Modern History program.

I’m off to try to get some sun before hitting the books again.

Keep counting down,

Tom
