Congratulations to My Friend

One of my friends has earned her PhD in Computer Science, and I’m super excited for her!

She’s married and has two wee children, and her husband watched them and worked from home while she worked on her Masters and then her PhD.  It was a TON of work, and she struggled at times, but do you know what?

She achieved her dream.


It gets better.

She was hired for a tenure track position at a state college.  (Not saying which state or college, because I don’t have permission.  Hence some deliberate vagueness.)

Way to go!

She’s come a long way since I first met her in her early twenties.  So have I, of course, but I’m amazed at her ability to persevere and reach her goals.

She had a going away party, but I couldn’t attend because I caught a stomach bug and was sick for five or six days.

So, I’ll miss you!  Congratulations!

And best wishes in your new job.  *smile*
