09:28 pm - Life after school?
Well, since I defended my thesis Monday, and made the first set of (very small) corrections I'm often at a loss for what to do with myself. I'm playing a lot of games, reading, etc... but still feels odd not to have anything to do. I wonder if this is how people feel after leaving the military (though, obviously, that would be worse). I still need to put up my thesis webpage, which will take literally half an hour, and I think do some paperwork stuff when my other committee member gets back to me with his corrections and I make those... but really, there's little to do.

even just "between schools" I had an odd sense of identity disorientation, like the weightlessness of "I'm free" became, "dude, how do I keep from tumbling into the walls?" It's perfectly normal.

The best thing you can do is pick up a couple of hobbies or extra work hours, and look to re-structure your time (you know that's a problem for me!) before bad habits fill it for you. Then work on solidifying your other identities. Remember, you've had this one for about 20yrs, and it's hard to let go of.
