Owl Side

Huzzah! ::dance of linguistic triumph::

....for I have passed my oral qualifier with flying colors, much praise, and a hefty sense of accomplishment. I received such compliments as "A cut above the rest" (my advisor), "you kicked butt - and I'm not just saying that" (noted hard-ass in the dept), and "wow - that was so much better than I thought it would be...usually I just fall asleep".

The last one pleases me the most, I think.

But hurrah! Now, I have to spruce up the written portion and submit it to a major journal for publication.

My Academic Ego is very pleased.
