Donning the Sablay

Thursday, April 17, 2008

A few days ago, my adviser asked me if I’m joining this month’s graduation rites. I don’t really feel like going. Donning the sablay for a second time seems a bit anticlimactic to me. Passing the comprehensive examinations, submitting the first draft of my thesis, defending it in front of the university’s formidable professors and having it finally approved mark such high points in my life that the graduation might pale in comparison.

After exceeding the Maximum Residency Rule, being dismissed and readmitted then paying penance, I’m finally done. I got my degree. Perhaps it’s now time for another one.

Go to college to get a B.S. then an M.S. - more of the same - and then PhD - pile them high. :)
