Hey Everybody

Sorry to have been posting infrequently. Getting my dissertation proposal complete has been quite distracting. I’m elated to report that it’s done! In two weeks, I defend it. Assuming all goes well, from there I am cleared to write my dissertation with official departmental sanction! I hear these defenses are brutal however. One friend reports leaving thinking, “They like my project, they just don’t like me.” And others have reported identifying with that feeling. But as long as they approve, I will not be discouraged by much of anything, I expect. :)
