Happily, I have finished grad school!!! In February I will be conferred with a Masters of Arts in Military History with a concentration on War Since 1945.
This week my thesis was approved by the History department with no edits. Being that all my coursework was online, there is really no way for an oral defense. So instead, I had a very rigorous set of readers go through it with a fine tooth comb. I was told it was solid, and my only problem was the future need for even more proofreading (I agree after reading through it for a fourth and fifth time after I thought I had caught all my errors) and also to dig even deeper in my research.
I received an A in the project class, and therefore should graduate with honors. I'm stoked as I've worked really hard the past few years. I know my wife is excited to finally have me back and not pounding away on the keyboard for 2-3 hours every night.
Anyhow, I'm excited and just wanted to share...now I need to go see if I can upgrade to a new job with better pay.
