today. now.

I had my last class (potentially ever).

I have the possibility of never being a student again. There are no plans for me to apply to any programs, register for any classes, write any papers, give any presentations, or take any exams.

When I finished college, I knew I was going to grad school. When I finished grad school, I knew I would get my teaching credential.

I've always described myself as a student. My conversations have most often centered around academia and my experiences within in. I've never had a moment in my life when I wasn't a student or didn't have any plans to become one again in the near future.

Until now. This very moment.

I find myself completely unsettled by the notion.
