All summer, I *knew* intellectually that I'd finished my degree, and that I wouldn't have to do the school/work two-step this fall, for the first time in 3 years - but it wasn't until I was walking home tonight, at the end of the first day of the academic year where I work, that I really FELT IT down to my bones.... I AM FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sent an email to IT about getting access to Qualtrics for a study I want to do this fall. Got an email *SIX MINUTES* later with an individual log-in & temp pw, links to training, and links to IRB. Bonus of working on small and young campus - shit gets done FAST.
