Dr. Stewgad, Ph.D.

I’ll post all the gory details tomorrow, but just a quick note to let you all know that it went really, really well. The committee loved the project. We had a nice conversation and they passed me in about 20 seconds. Not even conditionally. They even said it was “beautifully written.” (!!!)

It almost was enough to make up for the last 13 years of agony.

And now, to bed. I might actually sleep all night for the first time in weeks!

Thanks so, so much for all of your good energy and kind words today. They were really, really appreciated.

  27. This morning (at about 1 year, 3 months, 3 days abd), I found myself typing into a google search “I HATE MY DISSERTATION!” I wasn’t actually looking for anything but found your chronicle. It made me laugh and I really needed that.

    I still hate my dissertation. But at least I know somebody else could relate–and yet finished.
