Business Cards of Truth

For about two years I've had business cards that list my credentials: B. A. Hons, B. Ed., M.A. I got them partly as incentive to actually finish the M.A. - they're nice cards, very professional, bright and colourful. But every time I've handed one out, I've had to point out that I don't actually have my M.A. yet. I've gotten very good at spontaneously generating synonyms for "not done yet" - forthcoming, pending, imminent. Any day now. Seriously, it's so close the light at the end of the tunnel is giving me sunburn.

Well, finally, the cards no longer feel like a lie. My thesis defence was last week - it went surprisingly well considering this was the Murphy's Law Master's Thesis (if anything can go wrong it will) - and once the copy is in to Grad Studies, as far as the university is concerned, the degree is mine. The ceremony in October to actually give me that elusive piece of paper is just the icing on the cake.

It's a good feeling.

I have one of those cards!

Yes, icing on the cake. Congratulations!
Wooo whooooo, Paula Jane! And welcome to the Blogosphere...
Thank you both!
