Victory is Mine!

I emerged from my defense victorious. After suffering the mental challenges posed to me by the tribunal of academic inquisitors, I embarked on an extensive night of celebration with too wide a variety of spirits. (Thanks E, M, and C!) Despite feeling the ill effects, I managed to properly represent at the department History Conference consistent with the tradition of KFR, Matto, and El Machetito from last year. The evening was topped off with a wonderful dinner at E's new pad, courtesy of Morgan and E, accompanied by considerable vino and a viewing of KFR's montage of favorite music videos. Great Stuff!!! I will try to savor my victory for a few days before delving back into the murky quagmire that is Latin and Greek for the remainder of the summer.

I Endure the Defense Tomorrow

Here is how I envision my Friday afternoon engaged in my MA Thesis defense. Hopefully, it will be slightly more enjoyable than this, but I don't want to set my expectations too high. Have a nice day, and I will report the outcome of this trial by ordeal in the next couple of days.
