It snowed today. It was the universe tossing confetti at some very good news! You may now address me as Dr Chera. (And here I take a bow.)
I passed my viva with minor (mostly typographical) corrections and advice for further revision for future publication. I’ll rest for a couple of days, polish off the corrections in a day or two, and then it will be done and dusted. Huzzah!
Needless to say, after a two-hour defense, followed by a three-hour lunch with my examiners and supervisor, two hours of chatting and cake with colleagues, and an hour and a half choir rehearsal, I am exhausted. But I am also starting to feel pleased. I’m sure to feel even better once I’ve had a good sleep.
