is now ABD

I am now officially All But Dissertation. Woot.

This one actually means something as I get to stop taking classes from here on out. So now I just have to finish this semester and, um, write a dissertation. Yip!

Yay!

Give us the update tomorrow, please, oh defeneder of dissertations!

Ah.

Um, I don't defend the actual dissertation for many moons. This was just the proposal. This gives me official approval to do the dissertation and also moves me officially from someone who takes classes to someone who does research. I will be actually doing the dissertation over the spring. There are universities in the world who hire people who are just ABD, not yet actual PhD-ers, but the job market is so tight in my field, that's pretty much no one.

This is for your PhD, isn't it? You'll then have to find a new university where you can be pond scum, I mean an associate prof, right?
