Good news, everyone!

Hi guys! Hope y’all are doing awesome!

I just wanted to share the good news with everyone, 'cause I finally finished my thesis last month, and submitted it on time! Had to take a very deep breath, disappear from all social media (/human contact) for about a month and swim underwater until I got it finished - at about 7.30am on the day it was due in. (I then slept for 14 hours and haven’t been doing much else since).

Not a Dr yet, I’ll have an exam/interview in a few months and then probably get given rewrites of a to-be-determined extent (my supervisor endorsed me submitting it so I doubt it’ll fail but I’m sure there’ll be something to do, I spotted one typo already). A big step along the road though.

Anyway I post because I want to thank the crowd here - you guys have given me support and friendship in many dark hours along this road. :heart: And thank you to Gbx too, because with Battleborn and Borderlands you guys gave me a lot of distracting joy, as well as an awesome forum filled with crazy and wonderful people.

I do! You’ll find it on this post, contratulations! Just in time to recover a bit and hop on the hype train for BL3. Seriously though, that’s a big accomplishment, and you’ve earned it. :clap: :partying_face:

Well, handed in my corrections today and got them approved (with two changes, I had to change ‘perimeters’ to ‘parameters’ and capitalise one use of the word Hotel) which means I am thoroughly DONE with the PhD and just have to submit a hard bound copy. Which I really hope no one ever reads lol.

Again, as I think I said above, thank you guys for this community. Y’all’re great!
