The last day of classes is weird!

Today is my last day of classes for the semester, and though I'm taking two classes over the summer, it feels like the last day of classes in a more significant way than in the fall. The classes I'll be taking this summer will be both more intensive (jammed into 6 weeks) and less intensive (summer classes are more practice, less theoretical), and I'll only be taking one at a time, so this is really the end of my being a full-time student.

I'm not participating in the graduation ceremony in May because I'm not graduating then -- I have these other classes to finish! But by the time "my" graduation ceremony swings around next spring, I'm pretty sure it'll feel irrelevant to come back and walk. So today feels both climactic and anticlimactic, and there's a lot of, "Hey, it's been good to get to know you this term! Have ... uh, have a good life!"

I think I'll have to come up with a way to celebrate once I have all my papers turned in (fantasy schedule: turn them all in by Friday; realistic schedule: turn them all in by next Monday), and then again at the end of the summer when I'm Done done.

How do you celebrate life's milestones?
