I PASSED!!!

Post by Rowena » Tue Nov 20, 2007 6:04 pm

Hi everyone! :wave

Guess what! I PASSED my scary oral comprehensive exam for my Master's Degree in European History--With Distinction!!! I was so completely terrified to go up before the board--the heads of the history department and of the graduate program were on mine!--and have them grill me on anything that's ever happened in Europe ever, all the classes I took, and all the papers I wrote, but I did it and I answered all the questions, even the tricky evil ones, and I PASSED WITH DISTINCTION!!!!! :D :D

I've still got one oral comp to go to finish my double master's--the next one's on American History and it'll probably be in February, but as of right now I'm just so excited and happy and RELIEVED that I passed this one I just had to share.

I'm a Master of History! HOORAY!!! :D

Nice job! And good luck with your next comp! Will that make you an MH MH?

Oh WOW, thanks so much guys!!!!! :D MA MA, I hadn't thought of that before. LOL! That's really cool!

We're kind of counting Thanksgiving as being my celebration party because, not only will the whole East Coast side of the family be there, but I get to pick the menu, and I get to cook it (which is good, because I love to cook)!! LOL! :D We're going to have herb roasted turkey with spinach artichoke stuffing, honey mustard squash, garlic string beans, fresh cranberry sauce, cheesy mashed potatoes, and sweet potato bacon biscuits! The cousins are bringing dessert. :)

I'm so happy right now! I think I'll just do a dance.

:monkey :dance :dance :monkey

Thanks everyone!!! :D
