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.
