A perpetual student


Meg graduated this weekend.

Sort of. Meg graduated but she goes back to school tomorrow. And she keeps going to school through August, when she'll have (hopefully) passed her boards and jumped through all of the appropriate hoops and then she will have one last celebration with her very small class and then? Really, really officially honestly totally done.

Maybe.

Or maybe she'll be like me. She'll have the feelings that I had, sitting through her commencement. Feeling like she isn't done. That this isn't it. That she hasn't put on a cap and gown for the last time.

For Meg, it was a weekend of celebration. For me, it was a reminder of that little whisper in the back of my head that I try to ignore.

I don't know what I am doing or where I am going. But I know that school is still in the picture. School is still very much in the picture.

As is one day working for my successful, genius sister. I'm not too proud to ride on her velvet coattails.
