"The Plan and Other Stories"
In June of 2007, I participated in spring commencement ceremonies, but I had not completed my Kalamazoo College course requirements. I had not done my SIP. I returned to Kalamazoo College in March of 2009 to finish these requirements and write my SIP. My SIP is a collection of creative non-fiction that tells stories and describes the emotions of being on the cusp of leaving the education community and entering the "real world." While my stories are focused on a road trip I took during the spring and summer of 2008, I feel that they represent and reflect the entire two year block after I left, and how I came to find my way back to, Kalamazoo College.
