Graduated Colandar

After taking a seven-day vow of silence, Roman Numeral J is back. On Friday at approximately 3:45pm the University of Chicago awarded me with a Master's Degree in the Humanities and the promise of great things to come...

I am completely finished. And hoping to keep going... endlessly. I never want to give up schooling. I will just plan to continue collecting degrees of various ... degrees until the world comes to an end (zombie-related or otherwise).

The same day as i was released from university life the World Cup started... so instead of being glued to my books & laptop, i'm hooked on ESPN & ABC... The World Cup is the only world-stage type event in which i find myself cheering for the U.S. With most sports we're so self-assured and self-absorbed that i hate US, but with soccer, we're actually underdogs... and it's such a wordly sport that we could never become dominant & generally suck, so it's fun to actually root for us...

Go US. Go Us, go us.

this isn't the one you took? Well, this one is inspired by the one you took at least.
