I guess I forgot to write this on submission day, but it's been all over for more than a month and I'm just now feeling the relief that it's all finished. My university career is over! Wtf?! The last few weeks before October 3rd were awful and some of the worst in my life, and … Continue reading Dissertation Update #9
