Another sign that we're not a close family

ChaliceMom: Hello-o!

Chalicechick: Hi Mom.

ChaliceMom: So have you graduated yet?

Chalicechick: I would have told you.

ChaliceMom: Oh, well, you know we don't talk very much.

somewhat dispirited when Mom was like "So you have a WHOLE 'NOTHER YEAR?" Actually, being able to graduate in three and a half years from a four year part time program is pretty good, I thought.

If you are lucky, you may be able to maintain that negative answer for another decade or so. At least it would be a good idea.

Feh. The DC market is already improving. It's not going to be what it would have been five years ago, but I will still find something when I get out.

That really is a bummer.

Keep in mind that for OLD PEOPLE time goes very fast so your mother probably thinks it's already been four years.... :-)
Don't let her insensitivity get you down -- it doesn't mean anything about you, it means something about her.
