Where in the hell am I?

Consider it defended!

Filed under: almost done, defense, thesis, update — John @ 4:45 am

I said I would try and keep up this week with updates on the thesis countdown.
The defense went very smoothly. I ended up presenting for at least 20 minutes and maybe closer to 30 (those who know me know how I can ramble). I only had a few simple questions, and my advisor had already tipped me off about his. Both professors had a lot of praise for me, which felt great.
Funny thing: I was way more nervous before my Spanish oral exam earlier this year.
I now have all the signatures on all the forms as far as I can tell. I’m about to print my abstract to the 25% cotton bond paper. Tomorrow, I’ll make the minor edits suggested by my second reader (and they’re very small, which is why I’m going to do it tomorrow). I’ll make a pdf file and burn it to a CD, and sometime tomorrow late morning or early afternoon I’m going to turn it all in. That leaves me 2 full days to take care of anything I somehow missed.
I’m still pretty full of nervous energy. I think I’m going to be pretty exhausted by the time my mom gets here this weekend.



  1. Congratulations, Defendor!

  4. A belated yahoo! And if you like come-from-behind sporting events, you’ve got to watch the men’s platform diving final.
