Remember that favorite professor of mine that I had a nightmare about where she failed me on my oral defense of my thesis because I wasn’t prepared? In that nightmare, I was way more upset about disappointing my professor than I was about failing my thesis defense… Well, that professor is now my thesis chair! And I am going to do my best to make sure that nightmare doesn’t come true.
I could not be more excited to have her as my professor. This professor has been such an influential part of my graduate student career since day 1 (technically, day 2 when I had her class….).
And so the “thesising” begins. I have a clearer idea of where I want to go and what I want to do. I get to write a thesis on something that I love and I could not be more excited!
That was my success of the day. My fail of the day was finding out that my “research” was spelled as “resarch” on my resume. God knows how long that has been there… I definitely have gotten jobs since then. Hmm…
I know I can complain about grad school sometimes, but this is what it’s about. No matter how exhausted, overwhelmed, zombie-like I get, I always have something that I am excited for the next day. I have to convince myself to go to sleep at night because I want to keep reading all of the things.
And, now, I’m going to go read about object-oriented ontology and feminist new materialisms and crativism. I could not be more excited!
