pomp and circumstance

so i graduated sunday. the whole experience was pretty surreal. on the one hand, it felt more like a celebration than my undergraduate graduation because my family actually had to travel up here and i had to make dinner reservations and plans… like most students. back in lex, i just walked across the stage and then walked home. semi-anti-climactic. on the other hand, the degree is the least important aspect of the st. john’s experience. no graduate student goes to st. john’s for the degree (or if they do, they won’t say so). it’s all about learning. i mean, i don’t even know what my grades are. so i have this piece of paper conferring on me the degree of “master of arts of liberal arts,” but i’m not really sure what it all means. i did, however, get very excited about the hood.
