Last week I handed in my dissertation, marking the end of formal education (at least for now) for me after nearly two decades of it. I also turned twenty-three and had about four different celebrations of those two events with various family members and friends. I'm now able to breathe as I've one less thing on my plate and I've also got the opportunity to chase the life I want being a year older and, most certainly, wiser.
So, you're all up-to-date with my life and have a sense of how I'm feeling; relieved, overwhelmed, excited, anxious, joyous. Now, have the pictures that represent this moment, this beat in my life and the feelings entangled with it.
