Triumph and a Nap

It's official! I have my Master's in Comparative Literature. Well, nearly official anyway - Monday is the obligatory "get crazy amounts of paperwork signed, copied and through the department so I can get the diploma up on the wall" day. But I passed the exam. And here's the thing...I actully had fun. Thanks to copious note taking and a fairly obsessive-compulsive personality, I was prepared enough that the exam felt more like a long conversation and less like the culmination of 2 and a half years work. So yay!!! Now it's time to start reading the stack (and I mean Stack) of books that have been waiting for me for the past, well, forever. And it's time to start focusing on writing full time while I can. And it's time to research instructing at Dallas area community colleges. But mostly it's time to take several longish naps. Then I might actually post another review...

Please allow me to be the first to congratulate you on your degree! What a terrific accomplishment.

I am sure you are ready for a long nap, and you definitely have deserved it. Best of luck finding a position in Dallas.

Kudos and Congratulations!!

Maddie, my sweet!!! Congrats tenfold (and then some) Sorry I've been so lame and out of touch The winter classes and the start of my final semester proved to be more tricky than anticipated, but I digress. I'm so excruciatingly happy for you that it stings a little bit. =) Seriously.

That being said, I hope I can keep it together long enough for coffee or something of that nature, so that I might be graced with your newly degree-ed presence. =)

Why hello there Miss Robin!
Lovely to hear from you - I figured that the end of the semester would be pretty all consuming...
Coffee would be lovely - I'll email you early this week and we can sketch a plan for beverages and catch up:-)
