J'ai Finie

Countless hours in this spot, staring at the screen and furiously inputting my ideas as fast as I could type.

Reams of paper and endless sticky notes.

Unnumbered orange highlighters, red and blue fine-tipped Pilot ball-point pens, and Zebra M-301 mechanical pencils.

Cases of silver cans of energy poured over ice into a high-ball glass.

Ten classes.

As my niece used to shout when she was a tiny girl . . . J'ai finie.
I finished.

On Saturday, I submitted my capstone paper and logged in on the ASU website for the last time.

Can two years really have passed already? Did I really complete all of the classes and assignments and reading?

I really did.

J'ai finie.

As I told my professors, I'm feeling a little empty and lost right now.

Professors Brown and McCoy,

Here is my final submission for my final class for my master's degree in gifted education. Hitting "publish" on this assignment will be a very bittersweet moment for me. I have loved every moment and almost every assignment required for my degree, and I don't know what I will do with myself now that I am finished. I already feel the void and wonder what will fill my time--and if it's possible for me to love whatever fills it as much as I've loved what I've learned over the past two years.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thank you for your time.

Jenny Denton
