That's Ms. PhD, thank you.

I passed my defense and turned in all the appropriate paperwork to the graduate school. I thought I would feel immense relief and a sense of accomplishment, but the whole event was rather somber. After all the committee members had congratulated me and left the room, I found myself scrubbing coffee stains off of a table and thinking, "This is it? Huh ...."

Now I just have to incorporate all the committee's revisions by mid-April.
