official mistress.


Sometimes, seeing is believing. I officially got my Master's degree last May, but because of some logistical issues (*cough* a professor lost my French reading exam and THEN forgot to turn my German reading exam in to the appropriate person on time *cough*), my degree wasn't conferred until last December. And only now did I actually get my paper degree. Ah, the throes of academia.


At any rate, I officially have a Master's and am now blithely skipping struggling tooth and nail toward my PhD. Next up: preliminary exams. September.

The Summer of Non-stop Studying begins in one week. But for now, I am off to Atlanta/Athens to spend some time with my family. There will be copious amounts of eating at the Grit. And maybe I'll have a finished sock or two when I return. Though they'll likely be an unmatching pair, but we'll see.

Be back in a week!

That's wonderful! I graduated from Penn in 1991, but because I'm still paying off tuition, they won't give me my official transcripts OR my diploma. So I truly understand how much it means to get that paper and official recognition. Enjoy your weekend!
