fetching-bound-PhD-thesis.jpgMy mother, daughter and I laughed so gleefully when we picked up the five copies of the thesis from the copy shop that the copying men smiled back, enjoying the absurdity of photo sessions in a copy shop. It looked just like in the PDF, except realer. It didn’t feel real at all leaving the bundle of theses in the secretary’s office with a letter on top formally requesting that the thesis be considered for the dr. art. degree. There were no witnesses except for my mother, daughter, two students we passed in the hall and my mother’s camera. But I think it’s true. I finished!

    A big bunch of congratulations Jill!!

    Be prepared for a few withdrawal symptoms when the initial euphoria has worn off. Thereíll be all that time thatís no longer filled with thesis-writingÖ.. But each time you feel at a real loss, just put on your best teapot, climb onto a duck and take a ride into the sunset …. But before you take off, remember to edit the text on the left of your blog. You’ve moved on from there now m’gel!!!
    Loads of love,
    Mum

    PS Great photo!!

    Yes, indeed. At least, this reader noticed.

    Many congratulations. I remember the same elation when my wife finished hers about a year ago. It’s amazing you’ve kept up such an energetic blog as well. I look forward to more.

  35. ODP editor hansfn

    On behalf of the Norwegian ODP editors I wish you the very best! You should look forward to the defense – it’s a very nice experience and not dangerous at all 🙂
