Thinking about a Final Exam

Today I met with my advisor for our weekly meeting. There's really not much left for me to do on my thesis, so he encouraged me to begin scheduling a final exam. Right now I'm shooting for mid-June as the happy date. I've just sent an e-mail to my committee members asking for an overview of their schedules for the summer, in particular, dates that they will be out of town or otherwise occupied.

I'm pretty excited about the prospect of taking my final! I am looking forward to graduating. My job outlook seems pretty positive, too, so I shouldn't have to go long without employment.

I'm going to have a huge party after I graduate. I'm going to rent a room or a pavillion at the park district, and invite everyone I know and can tolerate to the party. I don't have many plans for the party, except that I want to have a cake that says "Congratulations, Dr. Rebecca" on it.

Ideally, I'd like to rent the lake house at Crystal Lake Park in Urbana, and rent some paddle boats and canoes for my guests to enjoy during the party. We'll have to see if it's still available.
