One Year Ago Today: Graduation from my BFA

Wow. A full year has passed since my graduation from Full Sail University’s Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. It feels like it was yesterday, and it also feels like it was decades ago. So much has changed. So much is new. So much is old. I’ve always thought that rapid growth and change…

Accepted!

Twelve Weeks.

As of tomorrow morning, I am officially twelve weeks away from my last day of class at Full Sail University. Three classes. Three more grades.
