I'm done with my masters' degree! I've been taking classes online through Golden Gate University, usually two over the summer (when I can reduce my work hours below full time) and one during the fall. I started it five years ago, after spending the first year post-college studying for (and passing) the four parts of the CPA exam, and then feeling a bit lost without having "student" as a part of my identity any longer. I have a lot more going on now, I don't feel the need to self-identify with my academic pursuits anymore, although it's certainly still possibility that I'll get another degree eventually. 

Abe and I spend the weekend at the coast, as a celebration of finishing my class and a last hurrah of the summer before he went back to work this week for the new school year.
