you may now call me Master Nerd











Last night, I sat at a big conference table with three of my amazing professors and talked about the classes I've taken and the stories I've written.

Of course, they didn't ask any of the questions I thought they might. And I didn't get to say most of the things I had hoped I would be able to. And when they asked how my reading influenced my writing, the mental list I'd made of books I wanted to talk about went entirely blank. But we had an interesting conversation, and they didn't hesitate to tell me that I passed my thesis defense. Perhaps they were swayed by the muhammara that I made them.

hey, i get to be the first one on your blog to say, hurrah! congratulations on your defense!
it seems you had the same luck talking with amazing professors that i had when i was in school. :) it probably just made it more apparent why i was studying writing.

And I am so very proud of you.
