Interestingly, full-time work has actually been less hard work. Now mind you my time is substantially more limited, but on the whole I'm more relaxed. A certain amount of regimentation does make it easier for me to get work done and then be able to enjoy my free time sans guilt. We'll see what happens when I hit crunch periods at the job.
I officially graduate this Friday and will have earned my International Studies degree. I won't actually be there since graduation is in Denver and I will be on way to Cape Cod instead.
There is one thing I will definitely miss after graduation: access to lots of free excellent databases from any internet connected computer. I can always drive over to use Maryland's, but that's kind of a pain. At least I have access to a many of them at CSIS.
