It’s all still a blur, but I know I ended my Master’s thesis presentation with the biggest smile on my face. The applause rang in my head for hours afterward. I barely even remember the evaluators’ comments during the defense.
All I remember is their last question: “What next?”
I’d already thought about the question long and hard. Would I attain a Ph.D right away, or take a break to pursue creative writing?
I smiled and said I’d follow my passion. They thought I meant science. I knew better.
“On to the next chapter of my life!”
This is a little 100-word challenge I set for myself just for fun, loosely based on a true story. Hope you enjoyed the piece! Thanks for reading!
