So, I've passed my Masters degree. I did not think for one moment when I started that I would be finished by now. But God knew.
I don't feel any different. Shouldn't I feel brainier?
But I am happy. And I believe even more strongly that God is there watching over me.

Well done, well done! You're a natural -- unlike us strugglers. Maybe you should feel that you're capable of knowing what good work is and you've proved it. Now I am intrigued by what you said.

Congratulations. So when are you going for the Doctorate.

Steven Jones said...

Wow - congratulations! Welcome to the "M" club. At least now no-one can call you a "Jack (or is it Jenny?)of all trades, master of none" :-)

Oh ye of little faith, thinking that you wouldn't be able to do it this year!

It creates an interesting little dilemma in terms of what you will be doing next year, academically. I wonder whether SMMS will push for you to do the PhD, or look at you doing some undergrad courses instead. Certainly, the case for you being there for only one year has just got stronger.

Congrats, Jenny. It's such an awesome feeling when it's done - makes all the work worth while. And you've done it during Phase One - no small feat!

Have some bubbly and enjoy the moment!

Thanks everyone!
Thomas, I did not do so well as you, so none of this strugglers nonsense! I'll try and put some of my thoughts from the dissertation on my blog in due course!
Neill, I will do a doctorate, but my education is in the hands of the Methodist Church next year.
Steven, actually it means I could spend longer at SMMS if they want me to complete a doctorate.
John, thank you - I am enjoying the moment!!!
