Vroom Vroom

Things are changing rather quickly.

I received the official "Congratulations, you've graduated! The diploma's in the mail" e-mail today. Since classes ended I've been thinking of myself as a graduate (I knew what my grades were and that everything was in order). Still, it's kind of weird to know that it's officially official. I'm not sure there's any point in the last 7 years that I really fully believed I would reach this point. I got me a BA.

To commemorate the official plunge into adulthood... Is this when it happens? Or did it happen already? Is there really a moment when a person becomes an adult? Or does it happen gradually? Will I wake up one day at 50 something and think "well, there's the last bit of childness gone"? God, I hope not. Anyway. The point is I bought a (almost new) car. That's a very grown up thing to do. Here's a picture:
It's a cute car. I love it.

Back to the adult thing. I refuse to wake up and have no childness left. I will never be too old to run through sprinklers. Well, I might have to shuffle through them at some point. Old ladies aren't always much for running.

I'm kind of all over the place with my thoughts at the moment. I should be sleeping, so that doesn't help. I've been at a going away celebration thing of sorts all night. A good friend of mine is heading off to grad school in Ohio. It's going to be weird without him. Or maybe they will be much less weird. He is, after all, one of the strangest people I know.

That's enough for now. I'm going to stop thinking and just dream now.
