Congratulations to me and my fellow Swedish students! Yesterday, we were invited to a lunch on campus to receive certificates stating that we have completed one academic year of studies here in the US. The fact that we are actually there, looking toward the very end of this adventure, is so extremely bizarre I cannot even care to comment.
The event on campus served us food à la New Orleans and some live music. A bit of an odd venue, since we were the only ones under the age of 45, but it was a nice gesture. And now we have "graduated" from our special, for Americans non-comprehensive, program. Except, we still have two weeks of work left. Doh!
