I got the news Friday, around 2 pm, just as I was preparing to leave the office. I had officially passed my four comprehensive exams. A feeling of relief passed through my mind, as I then knew that I no longer have to worry about this hoop through which I must pass. I have one lecture and one presentation left for this semester. I will then have two of the three years of the Doctor of Arts program down. Only one more to go.
I have one actual class to take, one to teach, and then the major writing project. Hopefully, these will get done in the next year, and I will be able to walk in my really cool robe and hat that are way cooler than the traditional robe and mortarboard. That will hopefully come next May. Chances are that I will be way busy in the meantime, however. Right now, I'm hoping to relax and get a round or two of golf in before starting on my next writing project.
In addition to the news that I passed the comps, my book also got approved last week. Therefore, it was a pretty good all-around week.
