Yes, it's true. It feels like just yesterday that I was admitted... but it's been four years. Four years, 40+ course credits, and a hundred pages of my senior essay later, I'm on the threshold of "real life," passing out of the embrace of Bright College Years. I will - write more about the Yale College Commencement 2011, our Trumbull graduation ceremony, class day, my feelings, my thoughts, my reflections... but right now I'm packing for a 3 week trip to France, Spain, and Switzerland by rail. (This all happened a few weeks ago, so what's another month of waiting?)
If you'll be in Paris, Tours, Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, Carcassonne, Barcelona, Bern, Luzern, Geneva, Chamonix, Annecy, or Paris (again) in the next few weeks, let me know - send an e-mail. When I get back, I'll be moving to New York in July (more details on this later...)!
Thank you to my readers who have followed me from high school to college. I hope I haven't bored you too much -- I promise college was more exciting than what ended up posted on this blog...! As always, the best new ways to follow along with me are at www.twitter.com/samjackson and occasionally at stream.samjackson.org where I tend to post tidbits more often.
I don't know what will become of this blog, but I do know that Yale has been a wonderful experience. I've grown a lot, had a tremendous time, and I'm excited for what comes next. In the meantime - I've got a lot of packing to do!
