thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

well, thumbs up to me. YAY!! i am now the lucky recipient of a ph.d. well...i will not officially receive the document until december, but i succeeded in the summer deadline for stuff. i am so darn happy...found out last-week friday, but not until yesterday was i 100% sure...there was a slight SNAFU on the paper work where it listed this tome as a "thesis" and a "M.S. in Biology." but the thesis-guru at school has assured me that it is just a typo and can/will be corrected ASAP. the signature on the tome is appropriate for the document to be correctly submitted, etc. it is mearly a matter of paperwork. YAY!!!

now, if i can just find a job...but it will happen, i just hope it happens sooner rather than later...sigh.

i am taking a few days off from worrying about the dissertation related stuff. i have submitted everything they have asked for and now i just have to wait and see if i get an "up-thumb" or a "down-thumb" from the Powers That Be in the grad school...just hanging out and breathing and reading like a mad-woman and embroidering some antennae on some butterflies that i have been piecing for a friend-quilt...the bodies are being cheater-appliqued (read fusible + blanket stitch) on to the square and then i am going to have my friends write something (just their names or more, what ever they want) on the blank squares i have and i will be making a kind of memory quilt for the PhD-time...we shall see if i can get everyone to do it...just thinking that it would be nice to have that to remember ECU-people.

anyways...time for bed (0035) and i am ready to sleep and not get up with an alarm tomorrow (yay!).


and a comic to pass the time "cats with hands" is the name of the comic strip

8 days

so yesterday i was talking to my sister, meg. and i had previously told her that the due date was the there she goes saying, "so, you only haeve 9 days, huh?" and i freaked out a bit...but i got over it. today i sent the final chunk to the i just have to get on OK on the overall abstract and then put it all back together and then to the grad school by next monday, july 19th. we are celebrating a little tonight and ordering pizza we are feeling poor, but it is yummy pizza and will last for more than one meal.

now i just need to find a job and get my account "unfrozen" (read: give the university more $$) and then i can access my transcripts and get said job...i hate this part...feeling like no one wants me, but i don't know that for sure...

oh, well what will happen will happen and it will all work out in the end, right?
