Marilla, Ph.D. (!)

February 17th, 2006 at 08:25 pm

I am now officially a doctor! (Of classics, not medicine.)
The exam went wonderfully well and I enjoyed a few days in sunny southern California. YAY! I even got to stay one extra day because of all the snow here on the east coast.

It feels wonderful to have completed my degree! I'm still grinning whenever I get to write "Dr." before my name. May I always feel as proud of that as I do right now.

I'm also happy that staying an extra day in LA was not a financial hardship. I've saved so much money these past few months by following people's advice here on the forums and by being inspired by your own stories. Thank you!

So far, I have paid off my credit card debt and have started to build up my emergency savings. Next on the list is to find a permanent job, pay off my student loans and save for a house.
