ABD

I am now officially ABD, or all but dissertation in my graduate program in Ethnic Studies at UCSD.

The past three weeks have been a furious, intense and nerve-shattering exercise in writing, reading, and defending myself. A curious process called in a very ordinary way "qualifying."

Yesterday, after more than two and a half hours of my defending my proposed dissertation and my hasitly thrown together answers to my exam questions, my illustrious committee approved my project, Guam: Where The Production of America's Sovereignty Begins!

I look forward to starting work on it, but in the meantime, I'm going to catch up on some movies and sleep. Gof yayas yan yafai yu' pa'go, lao magof yan malulok yu'.
