My oral examination and defense went well. There were definitely more than a few questions that I fumbled my way through, but in the end they signed the paper and said congratulations, so I am now a master of science and will be working on my PhD soon. Just one more degree. This was the shortest amount of time spent on a degree besides junior high (I don't know if you count that), but it was definitely the most fun and I learned a lot. Thanks for your endless support.
