The ceremony was lovely, even if saying goodbye to everyone I met was sad. We were given one last book as a "graduation" gift, a hardcover Hemingway. I hope to stay in touch with everyone, but I think we were all either beat or frantic after the Institute, since the e-mail list that was getting five to ten messages a day during DPI has fallen almost silent. I'm certainly still pretty tired, but then I've been going nonstop since January (trimesters are awesome . . . except that I graduated with barely enough time to finish my DPI homework before getting on the plane in July).
In the weeks I've been home, I've mostly slept, written, and read. This pleases me. Oh, and job-searched. But that's less fun.
At least this has a title. Or a workable working title, anyway. Prospective series name: City in the Sky. Book title: Skywatch.
