Passed the old comps defense. Next up, dissertation proposal in early October and then that pesky dissertation.


And tomorrow's my birthday. 1 score and 15 years ago I was born.

Congratulations just-about Dr. Paca. This is wonderful news. You are now over the top of the mountain and on your way to victory. Enjoy being ABD. Muffytrue

Sorry, mom, but I'm not quite ABD yet. Still have to defend the dissertation proposal. But we plan to get that done soon. 5-6 weeks. Hopefully no more.

Yes, woot! Congratulations neo-Dr Paca.

Great job! I'm sure you're ready for a little rest after hours and hours of sitting in a room writing essays in response to silly questions. :-)

You're just a wee thing to be so smart and nearly a doctor. And cute and furry, too.

Congrats on the milestone. I thought this was "it" and you'd be done today. I don't know how this works, having eschewed higher degrees in favor of the lure of the seductive dollar. Not that I've captured many of those seductive dollars, mind you.

Hooray for Paca!! Doesn't it feel just fantastic to get one more hurdle behind you?

And since I'm late to the party, happy belated birthday, too! I hope you had a blow out celebration.
