Yay! I'm a PhD candidate!

 Well, I still have to go through the formality of doing my oral exam with my committee chair. The three professors could not find a time they could all meet with me until a month from now, so I did it with two of them this morning. My chair said that usually these things don't even last the full two hours, so it would probably be consideraly less with only two professors, but I had to cut them off at the two hour mark. My chair says we can spend some of our time next week talking about the dissertation proposal, so I'm actually looking forward to that. I've got a draft put together already, a synthesis of my original proposal, written during my research classes, the report from my pilot study, and one of the three candidacy essays for literature review. 

Moving right along!
