So school has begun for the semester, and I'm not there. With the upcoming deployment, it wouldn't make sense to go to school for a few weeks, and instead I opted to graduate early, 14 credits short of my prior plans.

Watching my friends go to class, go to work, etc., these couple weeks are kind of bittersweet as I enter a new era in my life. I already miss the interaction, learning, competition, and feedback that school provided, and fully anticipate the next round of classes sometime after I return.

It's not the being over there that's hard, it's the not being back here.
