How random is this?!
I came home for lunch today and found this on my front porch:
It’s a hard copy of my doctoral dissertation.
I got my PhD in 2008!
It has been four years, and all the sudden, finally, it is published and they mailed my copy of it.
It makes me shudder to remember how hard that was, and all that happened during those years: good things, hard things, learning things.
Nothing has ever been harder, writing-wise.
Man, oh, man, is this thing pretty in nerd world!
Then I cried to remember my favorite statistics prof who was my committee chair, and passed away last fall.
What a random adventure, to literally close a chapter on my life.
Guess it is time for a new one, then, maybe?!
