I'd like to announce

...Dr. AcadeMama.

The defense was neither easy nor was it a lovely conversation. It's only just now sinking in that I've done this thing, and I haven't yet felt any sense of pride or relief. I am hoping those things come at some point though.

Congratulations! I'm sorry the whole thing has been so anticlimatic for you. I do understand, in a way. My defense was wonderful, but the revisions and corrections before I could file the dissertation were beyond grueling, so that took most of the joy of it, and the relief. I hope you do feel some relief in the end. Are you planning to participate of commencement? That probably would be nice.

P.S. I haven't comment in any of the recent posts, but I thought the post about blood in your hands was so moving! Thanks for sharing what must have been a terrifying experience with us.

CONGRATS!

I think a lot of people have to detox before they feel the accomplishment/delight/triumph.

Good going, Doc. Take some time to relish it.

Congrats- and I know what you mean about not quite feeling the extent of what you've just done yet.
