Reality and on

My diploma frame has been hanging on my wall since this summer. Empty.

Today, I finally fished my diploma out from the drawer I'd stuffed it in. I took it out. Put it in the frame. It looks lovely, hanging just above my bachelor's degree.

I'm official now. I have the matching job to go with the fancy paper. I'm allowed to be happy about my degree. It means something.

This week - the start of this new job (in addition to keeping my old job - at full time status for now) feels like the start of something more. Like perhaps I'm finally turning the page on a new chapter. From the working in a job I hate/living alone the East side/letting Colin continually break my heart chapter to the Living with Anna/working full time/going to school/being exceptional single chapter to... to... to whatever this chapter brings.

A new job is a good start. But I think there's more in store for me.
