Aaron's Dissertation is Kinda Done!!!

Well, first draft.

Back in November of 2007, Aaron took and passed his comprehensive exam, thus began the long and grueling task of writing his dissertation.  From approximately 2008-2012 he goofed off a lot, wrote some, and discarded plenty.  Once 2012 came he got serious and at long last the first draft is complete!

Now he has sent it off for reviews and revisions, so it isn't done done, but this is quite a milestone for Aaron, and a huge sigh relief for his wife.  That man has been a college student for 14 years now.  We I am ready for the next phase of life to get started!

I am just really proud of Aaron and his perseverance.  I joke about how I write just about every day for fun, and I bet I could have had 3 dissertations done by now, but I know writing a scholarly book about philosophy can't be all that easy.  Either way, I am feeling very proud of him, and soon we will be seeing him all dolled up like this:

I mean, is that a sweet hat, or what??
