Posting again! I will make up for my lack of posts with a barrage of them now.
Jury duty is complete. I held my breath with hundreds of other people while they called out names for a more-than-a-month-long trial, and I was not called. I have a shiny new certificate that says no jury duty for a year!
My class at UCLA is four people. The first of us, the only one to start the program with a Masters degree, defended her dissertation today. She is, of course, a rock star (now Dr. Rock Star). The rest of us (or at least I) can now hear our academiological clocks ticking. Ticking. Ticking.
It doesn't help that I've been writing a lot about Tik-Tok of Oz in this chapter. I feel like Captain Hook.
