Sophear: if you ever need proof to show that you got a BA from an accredited college and not from an online thingie
whatever, it will look good on your wall
and I want to see it!

me: it is not proof
people forge things like that all day
whenever i need proof just call the college and get them to send a sealed transcript
end of story. no one asks for a diploma ever

Sophear: OK, how about this – you PAID for that piece of paper!
a lot of money
thousands and hundreds of $$

me: no i paid money for classes and grades

Sophear: to get that piece of paper!

me: no

Sophear: the most expensive tree ever

me: whatever. i have a MA i don’t need a BA diploma on my wall

Sophear: sigh it would still be the nicest, roughest toilet paper ever.

me: …
of course you need the gold stamp on it
to get the right exfoliation

Sophear: If you were in LOST and on an island, you would’ve said to yourself, “I wish I had my diploma now”.

me: you are a special special girl

Sophear: : D

I have successfully submitted my thesis to the graduate school!

It involved me taking a two hour train ride and tromping ankle deep in rain mud. I ran all the way to the Philosophy building and then to the otherside of campus. I made it around in about 15 minutes. Just to give you a taste of how far it is, after all that running I did not want to run. On my way back, I had 17 minutes to make it back to the train station and it took me 20+ minutes to tromp all the way back from that side of campus.

My second reader finally got back to me. Yesterday. After I fell asleep around noon (yes, I pulled another all nighter to complete an upcoming food blog project). He contacts me around 2pm, which I read around 7pm. Fortunately, I think things might work out for me and I can go collect some signatures today… CAUSE TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO SUBMIT A THESIS FOR GRADUATION.

Right. So I am taking care of superficial formatting stuff right now before I dash. If all goes well, I will be celebrating later tonight.
