The following tweet sums up my feeling about what is about to go down next week:
— MET Community (@METSocialLab) July 7, 2018
In 48 hours, I will be living the dream.
Unlimited cinnamon buns.
Am I building #campuslife up in my head? Possibly.
I’ve got a supply list, too. I have a suite with a kitchen and breakfasts will be made in-room. The bodum is packed; electronic coffee makers be damned! Low-rider folding chair. 360 camera. Ear plugs. 2 portable chargers. Picnic blanket.
I am adopting somewhat of a honey badger approach to my learning. Well… “Dana Honey Badger”, that is. I can never truly not give a *$&@. That is not in my DaNA. I suppose what I mean is that I am letting my authentic voice be heard. In order for this to happen, my writing is conversational, and not through an APA-filter. If I need to write a paper, I will push the APA requirements to its limits. If it is not a formal paper, though… look out. I may drop a “holy crap” (should that be capitalized?) or a “Wait what?” or even a “Fan-freakin-tastic!”
Is how I am feeling similar to how I may feel when I retire? Yes!!!! That is it. My true self will finally be at 100% transparency; grammar will be but a mere consideration. And who cares??? I am outtie!
Such big talk coming from a pleaser.
I know that I will still put my all into my last course… who am I trying to kid?
Anyhoo… I am really looking forward to the f2f (that means face to face, in case you didn’t know. omg? on my goat, etc.) I am meeting a former group member from 5 courses ago; I am going to track down professors for a hand shake or two; I am going to bring a picnic blanket and loiter on a patch of grass. Shoot some fan-freakin-tastic 360 video. I CAN’T WAIT!
I couldn’t imagine a better way to finish MET.
