Congrats dude! I mean that sincerely. Maybe because my undergrad career took a couple years longer than it should have been, and in my last two terms I did the equivalent of 4.3 terms but that home stretch is the sweetest feeling in the world. Actually, the sweetest feeling is when you get your diploma. Then you know the school can't back out!
Something to look forward to is when you're done and you wake up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night going "I HAVEN'T BEEN TO CLASS IN A MONTH!" And then you go "wait...that's cause I'm not in school
. Hell yeah."

MrsG, on the other hand, is in full-on "nesting/OH DEAR LORD THE BABY WILL BE HERE BEFORE WE KNOW IT!!!eleventy1!" mode.
Congrats dude! (Again). Truly good news.
I'm really fucking happy now, like I feel normal again.
Everyone is really impressed with my work here and is complimenting me on my stories (even if I am way behind on them). I've improved relationships with really important sources (who also have liked what I've written). The food in Singapore is great, people are looking forward to me coming back home, I'm telling anyone who will listen how much better things are going, there are plenty of opportunities for me to pray here (with an organized devotion to the Infant of Prague)...it is great. I really don't know why all this good shit just happened but I can't and won't complain.
Actually I will complain slightly. I won't be able to see all that I want to here. Wanted to go to Malaysia just because I'm so close and won't have time, I won't get to all the museums...grr... Oh well there are much worse things.
