    Thesis done!

    Well, after more years than I care to recall, I've finished and defended. I've got some bureaucratic paperwork to clear up, but I've crossed the finish line today.

    I now have a Master's degree in biology for my work on arboreal snake locomotion!

    Congratulations! I think it was awfully nice of God to create snakes with that ability.

    Wow, you wasted all that time with the research, when you could have summed the whole universe up in one phrase: "God did it."

    I'm sure he appreciates the effort anyway!


    J/K congrats!

    Congrats Mokele!!!!

    I remember when I was in graduate school for medical illustration, one of my advisors who would sign off of on my thesis started twisting around my defense into a neuroanatomy quiz, aarrgghhh! Luckily I was prepared.

    And there was this one guy in the department who loved to be a pain at defenses....when he went on vacation I think like 6 people defended their theses.

    Anyway, congrats again and hope to see you at some future NECPS events. Hope you can get to the August BBQ...

    Yeah, that would be my advisor...


    I hope I'll be able to make it, but the medical anatomy class starts the 18th of August, so I'll understandably be busy.

    Yep, always more school. I'll be heading to Brown for my PhD, working on frog jumping.
