PhD Written Exam
« on: April 21, 2017, 01:29:51 PM »
Howdy folks!  This morning I start my written exam for my PhD.  I've got 3 days to write a set of papers in response to question from my committee.  This is the big gateway before I begin work on my dissertation proper.  For those of you that pray, I'd certainly welcome some prayers!
God Bless

Prayers and good wishes.

I don't know DG, anything that stays underwater all of the time smells a little fishy.  :lol:

But I think Arthur is okay.  :D

Friends, the encouragement and well wishes here and your prayers mean more to me than I can express.

Whew.  That was decidedly difficult.  It is done.  Whether or not it is enough remains to be seen.  Now I'm going to sleep for a week.
God Bless

Nice work passing this hurdle, Benton! It's a good time to catch your breath before you start sprinting up to the next one. :-)

Thanks to everyone for the support! 

This morning I was informed that, by the unanimous consent of my committee, I passed my written exam. 

And I was able to breathe again for the first time in a week.  I've been pretty stressed about this, so I am positively giddy with relief today.
God Bless

Me, I figure he will either start hanging out on the 86th floor of a skyscraper and surround himself with a group of adventurers, or he will adopt something like grey armor, saffron robes, or maybe tentacles, and turn to crime.
