Technically, I’m not officially finished with my undergraduate degree at Rice University. My final grades aren’t in and I haven’t donned the cap and gown and walked out of the Lovett Hall Sallyport. To embark upon the world beyond the hedges.
But I did finish one of the most important, meaningful projects: my senior thesis, or what is really my playwriting portfolio.
While graduation will be a great moment to share with my friends and family, this was an important threshold, too. It didn’t come with fireworks or champagne, but it marks my own threshold. I’m done with what I can learn here. It’s time to move on to the next adventure.
