The Degree

Today my MFA and my double magna cum laude BA and I were completely flummoxed by Word's "tab" function. After twenty minutes of sliding the little thingie over to the thing and watching helplessly as words scattered everywhere, I manually inserted five spaces in front of every. Single. Line.

Last night I walked out of the building to discover that it had rained and rained, little rivulets pouring down the gulleys while birds splashed in and out of them in the dark. I'd had no idea.
