Another PhD unleashed on the world

It feels so incredibly good to be done and I am so glad I never ever have to do that again. It was nerve-wracking, but my committee were very kind, asked hard questions but were generous with accepting my answers. I have to admit I cried a little bit later in the afternoon when it all hit me… nine years.

After beers, I went with some friends to the Cornell-Harvard hockey game and Cornell won in the last 40 seconds of the game – it was the perfect way to cap off the day.

I am just so glad I never, ever have to do that again.
