After a quarter in Oxford, a summer in New York, a lot of interviewing, transcribing, researching, reading, and writing ... my thesis is finally bound, turned in, presented, and graded! It's been an intense process that's spanned a number of years and a lot of emotional ups and downs. A lot of people have helped carry me through this, and I will forever be grateful.
My undergraduate career is practically over, and I'm excited to take a year and step away from academics for a bit, and then jump back into it pretty soon. Maybe I'll chronicle my grad school application process here...
I'm also now officially a member of the American Academy of Religion, and will be going to the conference in November, which I'm very excited about.
Here's to a new chapter of life!
