Personal Note

30 Jun 2006

Okay. Today I graduated. No more school, no more being a student. Life can be sweet. I’ve booked a nice hotel for sunday, monday and tuesday at the coast. I’ll be chilling on the beach with my lovely princess to take a small break and destress. Got to recharge for a moment.

Feels good to finally have a diploma. Damn, how I’ve longed for this moment. I still don’t regret having made the decision to go back to college after 4 years of working. And now, it paid off. I’ve officially joined the full-time working crowd.

Last month I signed my contract at i-merge, the interactive brandbreeding agency. I’ll be on the strategic/creative team, deploying my skills and having fun.

“Any last words?” a teacher asked me while he handed me ‘the’ papers. To which I replied: “Carpe Diem. Motherf*ckers.”

    Miel, congrats dude.
    Schools out. You take three days to enjoy the real life and then your ass is ours. Fulfillment of desire is the death of it.
    Yet, still: Respect!

    “No more school, no more being a student. Life can be sweet. ”

    You’ll regret that sentence.

    Congrats man. In a year I’ll be in the same place, but without all the wasted years. Now go make some money, and give me half.
