Life Lately, What I've Been Busy With...

Hi everyone!  This is going to be a pretty quick post, but I wanted to say hi & let yall know a little update on my adventures!

Me With My Gorgeous Post-Defense Flowers! 

I know that I've been really inconsistent over the last few months, and I'm really sorry about that! But I have exciting news! On April 2, I turned in my full thesis draft to my committee. Then, on Monday the 17th I had my defense, where the members of the committee asked me questions about my research, my methodology, and any parts of the manuscript that they had suggestions for, and I passed!!! I was so excited. It was a pretty stressful afternoon, and I'm so glad to be on the other side of it! Now, all that is left is to make a few edits and revisions, and then submit it to the grad school! 

I'm not quite sure what my next step is, i'm currently weighing a few options. 

Even though the thesis is close to done, I still have two weeks of classes left! One of the seminars I'm taking has focused on researching an old home in a small town near Tuscaloosa, and we are presenting our research to the class next week as we prepare for a grand, open house event in a few weeks! Each of us will be "stationed" in a different spot in the house, and we will guide visitors through as we talk about the topics of our research! I wrote on the Greek Revival aspects of the home, and am excited to tell people all about it! Maybe I will do a blog post on it soon.... 

What have you been up to lately?
