Slaying the thesis dragon

I DEFENDED! WOOOOOOOO! TIME FOR BEER AND PIZZA!

Thank you to everyone who came – Isaac, Aya, John, Oliver, and my mom. Thank you to my committee – Dr. Budd, Dr. Eberle, and Dr. Kraus. Thank you to my mommy for making cookies (while I stood by anxiously by and asked if she was sure I couldn’t do anything now that the nuts were chopped) of which John ate approximately half. Thank you Oliver for borrowing a laser pointer from his grad student and then loaning it to me.

I wasn’t too nervous and I think the presentation went pretty well. John and Aya asked some great questions. Dr. Budd didn’t grill me too hard (I’m not burned or bleeding) and there aren’t really too many corrections I need to do. So I just have to work through the thesis again and turn it in, then get signatures and I’m done!

Almost there.

BUT FOR NOW. BEER AND PIZZA. BEER AND PIZZA. BEER AND PIZZA.

Wait, you're allowed to edit your thesis based on the defense? That... that makes so much more sense than what my department does, which is to "defend" the thesis at the same time that you turn it in, when you can no longer make any changes.

That aside, congratulations on being one more, big, step closer to graduating! You give me motivation to finish my own degree this year :D

We're having a little post-thesis party this evening if you're free. ;) I just invited people via facebook so now I'm realizing that I missed sending some invitations I should have. D:
