If you’ve been following me, you’re aware I’ve been working on a master’s degree. This week I took a huge step towards moving on to the next phase of life. I had my thesis seminar, followed by the defense of my thesis. My committee chose to sign off on my work, so I’m that much closer to graduating. I do have some edits that need to be made to the thesis document itself, so I have about a month of work left to do. After that, I should be increasing my trip frequency and gear use, which should increase the frequency of my posts.
For now, I’d like to leave you with a short vid I included into my seminar. It’s really simple, but it went over well. I put it right at the point where folks were getting a little bored of some of the details to wake them up.
It’s been a long journey. I started this program in 2008, before I got sick. I spent nearly a year undergoing treatment for leukemia, and probably another 6-8mo after that just getting my head into the game again. Chemobrain definitely put me into a fog for a spell. It’s better now, but not gone. So glad to be finishing all of this.
