belated yay

I turned in my dissertation last week! I'll officially be a doctor on 9/1/2008. Woot! :)

Now on to writing the journal version...and then maybe my academic obligations will be fully discharged. I expect that this won't be quite as taxing, since it's mostly going to involve cutting stuff and refining it so that it flows smoothly.

In other news, I signed up for a pencil drawing & sketching class at my local tech school, so I'll be happily sketching away this fall! I've been self-taught up to this point, but it's long been a dream of mine to get some official training, maybe move on to learning how to use color (oooh!)

jcobleigh and I have started watching the first season of Stargate: Atlantis on DVD. It's fun watching the characters in their earlier years. First few eps are surprisingly good. The show doesn't reach the heights of the new Battlestar Galactica or Babylon 5, but it's roughly equivalent to the generic sci-fi fun, refreshingly non-soap-operatic, occasionally interesting thoughts of Stargate: SG-1, so I'm satisfied.

God (and life) is good.

Nice picture! You look all contemplative, thoughtful, slightly amused, and a little bit like you're planning to call me "freaky".
hehe
it was my birthday and i had limited time...because the babies were waking up and i think their mom went for a stroll...and imagine doing a self-portrait in a little diner/grill shop booth...!
What's funny to me is that even though I know objectively that you are wearing a head-scarf, every time I see it I think you've gone and got dreadlocks. It's just the way the shadows lie, and my own problems seeing colours in darkness.
somebody offered to braid my hair once...no dreadlocks tho
*sigh*
