I gots my Master degree today!! :smile:

Here are some details for those who might be interested. :smile:

Today I found myself at 1 p.m. facing a room with about 20 people, including four profs. O_O At first I was scared, but not as badly as I'd been yesterday at the rehearsal. My voice didn't falter or crack at all, and I'm giving myself a pat on the back for that. As I advanced through slides and answered the questions coming from the committee, I got more and more relaxed. I could watch the audience, I answered everything promptly and satisfactorily.. At the end I took one or two last (more complicated) questions from each prof and answered them-- with a little improvisation, sure, but I did answer everything.

And that was the presentation. I finished it in 45 minutes as supposed to, I managed to talk fluently all through it, show the profs I knew my stuff, and all in all do a pretty good job of it, even in my very strict opinion.

The audience was sent outside for the committee to "deliberate". As soon as everyone was outside, one of the profs said that there won't be any deliberation because it's very clear they will sign my papers. As they signed, all three complimented me on my presentation. They said I was a "natural speaker" O_____O, that I have a very pleasant voice, and that I didn't appear scared at all, and in conclusion it was a very good presentation.

I went outside with the signed papers and everyone applauded me.. That was great. Then we took some pictures, and I told the profs that I am a Mistress now. All laughed except for one prof, who took a few seconds and then said, "Oh! I'm finally getting her joke!" Hehe, I wonder what he was imagining.. XDD

All of this was amazing, beyond my wildest expectations. This was the best presentation I've ever given. I'm not saying it was that great, but it was the best out of all mine. My friends told me that it was one of the best Master thesis presentations they'd seen in the institute. =D

And that's it. :smile:

I knew it. Competent and fearless and an excellent presenter!

Congratulations again.

Where the night's kiss lights upon her; rose's rhapsodies, / Warm as oils, imbue this bliss-fed hour with trembling note
"Where-? And who-?" Her breath's unspoken soul is light's perdue
That, hidden, seeks the unseen with a sigh… "Ah, L'inconnu!"

I am quite glad it went so well. You clearly had done some very good work, and the presentation was the coronation of it all.

I believe you consider this master degree of yours as the achieving of an important personal goal. :smile:

Thank you.. :smile:

Yes, it's an important goal achieved.. And not only because it's a scientific title. It's me winning a battle against myself.
