Major life-changing update!

I got the PhD!

After all the drama, the external has (presumably grudgingly) agreed to pass the thesis. No adjudicator, no even-more-drawn-out waiting around, just: done.

I got the official confirmation a few hours before flying out to Vancouver Island (gorgeous scenery, way too much of an aunt-I-barely-know-but-alas-know-much-better-now), so my time's been split between spending time with the aunt, and taking nice long (8-10k) walks with Mum to kind of avoid her sister. Family, eh.

So I haven't had time to enjoy myself re: having a PhD, but gosh I've been getting a lot more exercise than usual.

And I got the PhD!

Aw, thank you!! I think the main consequence for this guy will be never being invited to examine a thesis at my uni again, as well as my supervisor telling her network about the experience, which might keep him from being invited to examine at a dozen other universities.

But that's his damage. :D I'm DONE!

I can confirm that the Pacific coast of Vancouver Island is stunning - we finished our time there with a side trip to the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, and it's highly recommended. The drive out is a bit harrowing (twisty mountain roads!) so I'd recommend one of the coach buses, or flying in on a small airline, or taking the seasonal ferry from Port Alberni round the coast. (I do not recommend Nanaimo - not that pretty, wind blows the smell of a nearby paper mill over the town. There are better places. :D)

And, I got the PhD! Whee!!

Thank you! It's been an annoying year, but the outcome is worth it. :D
