The Last Last Thing

Today I finished grading my students' final papers and submitted their grades. There have been a lot of lasts over the past few weeks. Last fiction workshop, last round of drinks with my fellow writers, last day of classes, final exam. Graduation was two days ago. But submitting those grades was the last of all the last things left for me to do. My time spent at NCSU earning an MFA and teaching undergrads was an amazing experience and I met many people who will likely remain among my favorite people ever. I will miss them all terribly. Sure, we'll see each other on ocassion, comment on each other's Facebook walls, pages, timelines, but today's last last thing really makes this leg of my journey feel over and makes my MFA family feel extra distant. On the upside, I couldn't be more proud of the work that we've all done collectively and as individuals. Hell of a group of writers. I'm glad I got off my keister and did this MFA thing.

Now all I have to do is sit back and wait for my Professional Writer checks to start coming in the mail.
