So after the submission of thesis I had to wait for the viva, an oral examination or defense.
That was last week. Now I am enjoying my new status, as a new PhD (a graduand and will be a graduate soon). As my supervisor said, I came out of it unscathed! Yes, after all the hard work, early mornings, late nights, and in-betweens, I can now relax. I have some minor corrections to make. And doing cosmetic stuff on my graphs, i.e. change the colours to black patterns. Tedious stuff but got to do it.
Just smiling now, and enjoying the weather...thanking one and all for the help, encouragement and support.
