One Happy Dr!

This is me after I got back from passing my thesis defense. Even though I knew I would pass, I think I was still a little surprised, or maybe I was just surprised that it was all over all of a sudden. In my hands in the picture you can see the Very Important Form that has all the necessary signatures for me to get my PhD, and I walked that form over to the Graduate School almost immediately after this picture was taken for fear of it getting lost (which according to urban legend has happened to a few unfortunate graduate students).

Now I have also turned my thesis into the Graduate School along with the rest of my forms and am officially Done With It, so that I can take the day off tomorrow and rest. I am having some friends over for lunch (oddly I'm not the only one that happens to be home tomorrow) and I also plan to clean out my car, which I am giving to my brother this weekend (good-bye car, you will be missed!). Hopefully in between there will be some time for sitting around and drooling all over myself.

Congratulations! Lesia told me I have to refer to you as Dr. Josie now, which I am more than glad to do. :) Japan is great, although they've just recently informed me that I'm here another year involuntarily, someone goofed on my paperwork and I get to live on this lovely island one more year! Yippee!! Anyway, my boyfriend and I have a site on "Myspace". Yeah I know join the Lemmings, right? :) Anyway, the site is... http://www.myspace.com/peachesandpiesy

Megan! What a treat! I think you've clenched it - I'm going to have to get a MySpace account so I can post comments on all the MySpace blogs.
