10 Years Later

Congratulations to my cousin, he's graduating from College today, and not just any college but my Alma Mater! (Is it mater or matar?) And not only is he graduating from the same University as me but he's graduating from the same department, the Theatre Department, AND it's "exactly" 10 years later! Bizarrely cool!

This makes me feel proud and some what nostalgic and old. Not OLD old, but old. I mean, what have I done over the past 10 years? Have I made a positive contribution to the world, to the world of theatre? 10 years since I graduated from SUNY New Paltz! Damn, where did the time go?

And now, not that I don't ask this question every single day of my life, but when surrounded by a graduation it's all the more "pressing" ... what's next??? This is very quickly dwindling into a woe is me diatribe so I shall cut it off here and now.

Congrats to my cuz!
