My 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!

Gratulerer sÂ masse med doktoravhandlinga di.
Sikkert godt Â vÊra ferdig.
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,
PS Great photo!!
Congratulations Jill – you should be proud! And I can’t wait to meet at a conference one of these days 😉 Cheers!
that’s fantastic, Jill. Good work!
See you in Melbourne…
congrats! do you plan on publishing it on your blog?
Congratulations – Now prepare for the slowest few months of your life. Even when examiners are organised it will still seem like an age until you hear anything!!
Woot! Congrats, Jill!
Have fun in Melbourne.
I see the hint has been taken – hope everyone notes that nice new text on the left of the blog!!
Yes, indeed. At least, this reader noticed.
(Now if she just takes the hint to not beat up on herself for feeling a bit let down after all this effort…)

Just piling on to say congratulations.
“It looked just like in the PDF, except realer”: dude, that’s fucking deep.
Congratulations and mazel!
Hey, I slept TEN HOURS! And am going for a run in the beautiful sunshine. Today things are indeed looking a bit brighter. No rain, for instance!
Grattis, congrats, woo-hoo and all that…
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.
