So it's the end of the semester, and no more the right time to ask the "when are you going to graduate" question. Instead, get this.
Anybody&Everybody: So, are you going somewhere for the break?
Me: No, I'm going to graduate.
Then lots of outpouring of sympathy comes. The awws and the ooohs and the "you poor thing you work too hard!". Anyone working hard does it out of choice or necessity. Neither warrants any sympathy. Yes I'm going to be working over the break. Yeah, the town is going to be deserted and depressing. It's cold. Everyone else is with family and friends. But really, I made this choice. And I have no issues with it. Nothing will make me more depressed than not graduating in May. So seriously, this, is nothing. Don't go feeling sorry for me. I am cool with it. And I am sure you did it when you were in this place once, or will do it soon when you come to your final year. So save it. Happy Holidays.
P.S: I wish I could have this on a T-shirt. :)
