Yeah, so last night was the College of Arts and Sciences Commencement, where I was to receive my award for the Dean’s Prize. Even had my name in the programme and everything. So they announce my name to come up and get my prize, and I freeze. I just can’t bring myself to go up and get whatever they had for me. I hope they’ll mail it to me.
I guess it was just freaky seeing everyone in their caps and gowns like that, realizing that at this time next year, I’ll be the one who’s graduating, and with any luck leaving UT for grad school. I’ve still got a long road to travel before that point, but the destination is within sight now. Seeing it last night must have just thrown me or something.
