There are a few more formalities to complete. Despite being employed by the university for 23 years I’ve never been involved in the academic side of things, so this is all new to me. It’ll be a couple of months before it becomes public via the library (or via me but that’ll be after the library has the offical bound version archived.) It’s all quite quaint in it’s way.
Thank you all for the kind words. I have been describing the experience as both terrifying and exhilarating at the same time. Now that it’s actually begun to sink in I’m beginning to fall more on the terrifying side of the scale 😉
It all happened VERY fast and I owe a great deal to a few academics who really pushed it through the system and pushed me to pull it together. Possibly a debt I will not be able to fully repay. It has been quite a challenge.
