hannah, do you see yourself in that top one?can you spot me?
me and my main man
with the parents o' minesee that funny hand? it's my nephew, sam's. and then with sweet caroline.
with eric and shayna
with kristen and kids: sam, annie, janewith dave and linda, ben's parents
i graduated over the weekend. with a master's degree of arts in women's studies. much of my family came to play, celebrate and eat with me. my ideal weekend.
i feel so grateful that i was surrounded by many of my favorite people.
especially ben. because well, he really saw me through my master's.
but even at this point, it still feels surreal that i don't have schoolwork that i am ignoring or that i will never have to earn a grade again...
i felt so strongly about going to school. that i should just do it. and so ben and i decided it could work. and it did.
i have learned so much. and i am not just saying that. so much that i don't even know where i was before i started.
i believe that the combination of living in dc, being married and being in grad school--- my entire perspective, my entire life has totally changed these last two years.
i have developed critical/analytical/theoretical thinking skills! a million times more than i did in my undergraduate degree and even then i thought i had developed that part of my brain a lot.
and so. for better or for worse i will never ever look at certain things in the same way.
feminism. women. academia. farming. food. relationships. capitalism. consumerism. media. commercialization. neoliberalism. religion. sexuality. political views. gender discrimination. education. textbooks. travel. culture. colonialism.
it's over, y'all.
