It's official people! I have a Master's Degree!!!!!!!!!
My oral defense of my capstone (master's thesis) is finally over and I am shouting glory!!!!

The oral defense was HORRIBLE! One member of the committee kept asking questions about stuff that I have barely heard of and at one point I had to say "I really don't know how to answer that". I tried to answer the best I could but she kept cutting me off and telling me that "part of the degree requirement is being able to convey to them orally that I know my stuff and so I should choose my answers carefully" She went on and on for 45 minutes until finally the other member took over. Lucky for me, I knew all the answers to her questions. Not so lucky for me... I was so rattled by the first lady that I was babbling incoherently half of the time.

So they ask me to hang up the phone and tell me they will call back to let me know if I passed. I hung up and cried like a baby. I knew I had failed. Believe it or not... she calls back and goes "I'm proud to tell you that you passed!" That was the point at which I dropped the phone and couldn't speak through my tears!

Anyway, I posted about this a while back and y'all were so encouraging. I wanted to update everyone and say a big fat
THANK YOU!!

Now you can cry in relief and happiness. And don't be put off by the overbearing interviewer. Some folks think their job in life is to make things difficult. You need to now think, "How can I CELEBRATE!!!!" Because you deserve it!

Good for you, MOMMYTN!!!!

I can also officially say that after 60 graduate hours, taking TWO national standardized tests, and doing 3 semesters of internship, I have graduated as well!!!!!

Too bad we don't live close to each other, because we should definitely celebrate our accomplishments!
