The proof is in the paper


I picked up something on Saturday, all bound up and ready for the examiners.


It does feel kind of nice to see it like that. Tangible proof that I did it, that these past four years (six if you include the coursework and comprehensive exam years) weren’t all for naught.

Onwards to the defense.
