I survived my defense and I am unofficially a PhD... It is pretty unbelievable and overwhelming. It is unofficial, because I have to make the edits to my written thesis and finalize with the school with all the paperworks. I danced by myself for a few seconds every time I remembered I am done with my program. I can't seriously express my joy in words.
I still have to make edits to my written thesis, which needs to be done this week before I leave for vacation next Sunday (so close.... so excited). So packing, editing, finalizing paperwork, and such it is going to be pretty hectic week. More updates will be coming soon after I have the time to sit down and write about what went on regards to my defense seminar and closed door defense.
