My dissertation, finally

It took me almost five and a half years, from the first class to my final defense, but here it is: my dissertation. Maybe one day I’ll write about the emotional and personal cost of a PhD but for now, I’ll try to revel in the relief of completion. Comments, as always, welcome! And of course, it is copyleft. So share and share alike (but give credit where credit’s due!).

BTW did I mention I’m a doctor?

    Congratulations! I know how you feel, I just deposited my MA thesis. And yes, there is the fatigue and all the rest, but what comes out on the first place is the feeling of having completed it. It’s done! Now we can pass on to something else.

    Enjoy your freedom! Be free! :)


    P.S. Would love to read your disertation one day.
