The other update:
I defended today and I passed.
I feel kind of numb right now.
I remember questions. I don't remember answering them.
I towards the end when I was acknowledging people, I started to cry, twice.
I blame it on the hormones.
But I held it together enough to get through it.
Unlike the final song of my final arch sing senior year of college.
Thank you to everyone for the well wishes, support, and the congrats.
