This morning I handed in the final paper of my degree. It is not my magnum opus.
But before I handed it in, I had a self-pity fest. "THIS IS NOT HOW I WANTED TO END MY ACADEMIC CAREER," I wailed to my quadmates.
"What?" said my roommate Heather with a sidelong glance. "By standing on a stool in your pajamas eating a bowl of cereal?"
Indeed, I was standing on a stool in my pajamas eating a bowl of cereal.
"Don't jump, Carla!" Cassie intervened, "Don't do it! It's not worth it!"
It struck all three of us as so pathetically ridiculous that Cassie grabbed her camera, handed it to Heather, and we continued the scene. Movie coming soon.
I can rock social media in my pj's.
