On my way to a meeting yesterday, I bumped into my 4th year history advisor-- the guy who really helped me refine my historical skills and learn the patience to sucessfully research three 4,000 word papers. For the first time ever, I called him by his first name, and he did not correct me.

He was incredibly excited about my news, and couldn't believe so much money was at stake.

The best bit though, was when we were comparing the British and the American PhD, and I said "well, I feel ready to jump into a Dissertation right away, but they will make me take 2 years of classes first." and he said "Oh, yes, you are definitely ready."


It's much easier to have faith in yourself when others do, too.

I've been kinda working on my dissertation through these few years of classes. I stumbled across my dissertation subject in my first semester, and I've been chained to it from there! :) This is incredibly fantastic because I know people who are still struggling to FIND a topic. The class period, though, is generally interesting. It'll introduce you to a variety of things and may help point you in new directions, or may give you opportunities to work on the general dissertation topic a bit. Although...there will come the point when you'll get tired of the classes. :) I have 2 semesters of coursework left, and I can't WAIT to be done!
