On November 9th, 2010 at 9 AM I successfully defended my Masters Thesis defense. It was an interesting experience. I was quite nervous but at the same time excited. With 3 days of no sleep, I was wired on something. So probably it was the excitement that finally another key milestone in my life out of the way. I passed with minor revisions. So now all that is left to do is make those revisions, send to Dr. Pei for review and then submit for publishing to the library at which point I can hit that button to apply to graduate. Looking forward to that.
