22. Congratulations!! Try to schedule your orals for around 11 am;
the committee will get hungry and let you go early! Is this your general exam, or the dissertation defense?

30. Thank you kindly for
the lovely words. It has been a good day. Taking U.S. and Latin American history to the kids, to tell them REAL stories about our past will be motivating and joyous. I can't wait to actually start teaching!!!

43. cool major. I study that on the personal level.
