With thesis scupture on wall in background

Yes, ya'll I finally partied and celebrated the end of my undergraduate thesis work! "Strange!" you might exclaim as you look at the above picture, "it looks like Mercedes is WEARING rough drafts of her thesis as a dress and cape" In that exclaimation, you would in fact be quite correct! A+ to you! And many thanks to all of the people who contributed minorly and majorly to my completion of this consuming monstrosity of a project. Your words of encouragement, gifts and music truly did it for me. Your love makes me cry!!! And thanks, of course to the people who contributed to the making of this dress...namely Jessie K, Carrie, and the good ol' Nan Goodman who marked up these rough drafts that I'm sporting here.
Perhaps now it may be needless to say, that the party was a sucess...I had a blast and the whole event was extremely cathartic. I treasure all of the people who graciously brought gifts and words of congratulations to me. It was quite overwhelming, like a birthday but even more complimentary!!! Thank you all!!

    Here r my comma-ments. (how is your punctuation? Mine is expanding and contacting at the sane time. It is so interesting!)

    Actually, this is my thrid draft of my comma-ments to you on your undergraduate education (the prior two r who knows where, probably on some random blog somewhere). But, luckily, I did not have to defend the first two drafts.

    I may not have to defend these comments either. U let me know. Defend it I will! Or, if you do not need defense any longer, but rather, r looking for a good offense, I will need to refer u..... [Some say the internet is defenseless.... but that would not be me!]

    YOU ARE SO BAD, I MEAN REALLY REALLY BAD. BUT IN A REALLY good WAY. NOT IN A MJ WAY. SO, U R NOT BAD AT ALL. U R GOOD! U R GREAT! U R CUM LAUDE! U R A GRADUATE! U R ON YOUR WAY.....

    Yeah!

    U have accomplished much in school, and it makes me so proud. Not so much as to what you have accomplished, but defintiely as to who you r and who u have grown to be and what your potential is. Awesome!

    What is so BAD (good) about U and where you are at, is your intensity, your direct approach, your honesty (with yourself and with others around you), your passion, your commitment, your drive and also, your density, leading to your ...... yeah, u guessed it, your destiny.

    Well, the path to your destiny......

    On that path, I have gotten a bit off track at times, but my commitment and belief in you and what you can be has never been off track. If I was not there at times, or u viewed me as off the mark or out of touch, or if I missed a meaningful event wtih you, please know that I am always there and with your in spirit (and will always be) and that I am commitment to and with you.

    I now conclude that this path of destiny for you is not a straight path. Some may say it is a path of diversity and introspection and articulation. But, once again, that would not be me and my comma-ments. My comma-ments about you can be summed up in one punctuation: ! Or, mulitiple punctuations: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    But, I have more then comma-ments, and more then exclamations. I have whole colons (not semi's). Oops. I don't want to go this way any more.

    Back to my commments about u and your thesis and school:

    U R THE BOMB. U R IT. U KNOW WHAT TO DO (even if you may not always be sure).

    AND WHAT YOU ARE TO DO IS WHAT YOU MAY NOT KNOW RIGHT NOW, OR IN THE FUTURE, OR ......

    Do and be what you love. Then, everything will be all right (or, all-left, depending on your perspective).

    What perspecitve? The one that matters most ---- yours!

    Yeah! Have no fear.

    Do not be afraid to be afraid, to have fear. Risk is where it is at!

    Go!

    Yeah!

    Just go!

    And do the right thing!

    Yeah!

    Go! Go! Go!

    And do the right thing!

    What else hardly matters?

    Well, of course, u do and all that you care about matters. And, that is what I care about.

    So, r we clear now?

    If not, go to your ground zero and think about what you want and what you dream for and aspire to. That is what you should go for and that is what you will get.

    Yeah!

    U r the one.

    U go 4 it.

    U can do it.

    U r it.

    U choose your life. That is the life you love.

    Love...... u know who....
