So, I'm only weeks away from graduating with an MFA in creative writing from Indiana University. It's kind of an odd feeling because I never thought I'd end up in Indiana in the first place, but I've been here three years now and it's kind of hard to imagine being anywhere else. But, such is life. I'm moving to Chicago to teach high school Humanities (English/History) and Journalism through Teach for America. I feel ready for that next step, but I guess I've identified so closely with this experience that I've kind of forgotten how it felt to not be here. My homie, Megan, knows what I'm talking about.
Besides, it seems like the graceful exit is a bit of a lost art these days.
