Defended! - trinalin thinks things through — LiveJournal
As I just tweeted, like planet Earth, my thesis IS DEFENDED! :-)

Apart from a bit of "oh was I supposed to call you?" going on at the start, I connected with my adviser and his consultant (who's the director of the Science and the Public program). I presented an Impress presentation (think open source PowerPoint) and then answered questions. They want me to have the university publish my thesis and even suggested sending an article or two to Science and Children, a journal for intermediate level science teachers. Woohoo!

It was rather fun. I did the presentation on mom's laptop since she's got an onboard webcam. I did it in dad's den with his bookshelves as the background (excellent background). And afterwards, the folks and I went out to celebrate with some etouffee and bread pudding at LeDoux's. Since LeDoux's is one of the few restaurants too far away to walk, we went for a walk after supper. Now I'm home and still a bit high from the experience. Woohoo!

Current Mood: ecstatic ecstatic

Do I have to call you "Master" now?

Yes, and you will obey me! ;-) (I wonder how many times I'll say that tomorrow at work. And most people won't get the reference! Bah!)

Oh, congratulations!

It's all a bit unreal, isn't it? I was walking around campus after I finished my orals, the final step for my degree, and felt like everyone should just know. Which of course, nobody did, but still. :)

Unreal is right. I couldn't sleep last night. Something tells me I won't be able to sleep tonight, either. Heh.

Enjoy it while it lasts, even if it means some sleepless nights. :)

Wait, do we call you Master or Doctor now? I forget.

Fffff, never mind, I just read the earlier comment. ^^;

Oh, YAY for you, Trina! *cheers*

like planet Earth, my thesis IS DEFENDED! :-)

Unlike Earth, however, your thesis wasn't defended by the Doctor. LOL

So, you're the Master now... heh...

I respect you for being a scientifically-minded woman. One of my regrets is that my sister and I never took my father's path into science -- he accepted it, so maybe we disappointed Mom more, but *sigh* anyway.

You seem surprised that your work was well received.

Me? I'm not surprised.

A resounding pat on the back to you, my friend! Great job.
