Based on my reliable sources, there was only a single Ph.D defense today on this planet and it was my good friend Rhonda who successfully defended her thesis.
Though I wasn’t at the defense, according to the media that was present, things went smoothly and the nearly three hour examination ended in what was widely reported as a “three-minute standing ovation”.
Ok, I may have made up some of the previous sentence but it is indeed true that the defense went well and it is just a series of formalities before I can officially start calling Rhonda Dr. Rhonda from now on. Congratulations go out to her and everyone who’s supported her through out these years.
I’ve known Rhonda for half a decade now and she’s been working on this Ph.D for that long, plus three months, so it’s been years filled with hard work and dedication. I really commend anyone who has the fortitude to complete a doctoral degree.
Anyways, congrats to Rhonda again, you’ve made your parents and myself so very proud.
