Discipula sum, literata ero... Ergo studere ibo.
You know what?

Whatever happens with grad school, I graduate in July. At that point, I will have been in England for 2 years and 10 months.

Whatever happens, I did it.

Shy, quiet, strange, awkward, homebody me -- I got across the ocean all by my lonesome, everything packed into two brand-new suitcases, got myself registered, to class, through essays, through exams, through house-renting, through dog-adopting, through TV-licensing, to the library at Cambridge, through Latin, through a couple hundred nights of lazy fish & chips.

Whatever happens, I got through it. The most wonderful, the most terrifying event of my life -- events of my life.

Whatever happens, I've been here.

Whatever happens, I've done something most people only dream of.

To paraphrase a bit...

Who can say if I've been changed for the better, but... I have been changed for good.

And in the end, whatever happens, that has to mean a lot.

Thank you, England, and good night.
