Done

Nothing to do with taekwondo, but I wanted to share that I defended on the 22nd of June, and now have a PhD. It is kind of neat. I tend to put myself down and be excessively diffident. But I won't give into that just this once. *Giving myself a pat on the back*. It took me 6 years (jeez, its really all gone!) and was fairly hard work.

Congratulations! This is an important milestone. Now on to the postdoc (it's like a new level on a video game)...

Thanks, Mad Dog. And thanks for stopping by.

I think you're right, at each new level, there's some 'crux' to figure out. During your Phd maybe its how to do research. Next it might be setting up your own research agenda.

I kind of like that (at least as a beginner) in martial arts somebody just tells you what to do, and you don't have to think so hard about it yourself!
