Yep. Today it finally all came to an end with my dissertation defense. I’ve had a rough time the past 3 months, but it was all worth it today when I passed my defense and could officially call myself DOCTOR.
Last night I prepared with some stress relief tea…
…and today after my defense I went straight to the steps of the Rotunda to pop a bottle of bubbly…just like Mr. Jefferson would have I’m sure LOL
There is still work to be done, it never ends. Journal articles to write. Data analysis for other projects. But I’m not going to think about that until next week. For now, I’m relaxing and celebrating. Oh, and preparing some of my graduation festivities in May 🙂
Thank you all so much for putting up with my incessant ranting and raving about the data analysis and writing process! Now that I have jumped this huge hurdle, I’ll be back with some posts that are more typical of the ones I wrote in the first 2 years of my blog (you know…social life and running. and eating. 😉 )
How do you celebrate big accomplishments?
