For my College (and my University), tomorrow is commencement.  Graduation.  The end of lots of things (classes, lectures, final exams, essays, etc.).  And, the beginning of many things (new job/career, new routine, new set of self-discipline skills to plan and implement).

In between the end and the beginning, celebrate.  You deserve it.  Take time to celebrate; think back on the road you have travelled.  Give credit where it is due — parents, friends, teachers, professors, workmates and . . .you!  You did it!  Be proud.  Be glad.  And, be respectful of the work you put into earning your degree.

I’ll be congratulating 43 majors in my Department who are done (finally!); and hundreds of others in my College who are engaging in the ‘final ritual’.

Good luck!
