Pennsylvania?

Is it possible that we will move to Pennsylvania?  That is the current question of the hour.  I just got back from an interview at a small, Catholic liberal arts college in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.  I think that it went well.  So we begin to comtimplate what it would mean to move there.  The biggest concern in my mind … what will Bear do if we move there??

Well … it has been a long road.  One that began even before I joined the University of Texas but today, after 8 1/2 years, I completed my degree requirements.  As many of you know, back in October I had my oral exam and was thrilled to get all my signatures.  It has taken some more work but today I walked across campus with my paperwork and made it all official.  It took about 20 minutes and I only forgot one form (fortunately they had extras).  Got the email confirmation.  Now … let’s see how long it will take to sink in.

So graduation is in May.  I will definitely be doing the walk.  Graduation weekend is May 21-24, with the University-wide graduation on the Saturday.   Further details are not yet know.  The picture shows UT’s official regalia … we’ll have to see if I want to buy the regalia or rent (rentals are black).

Does anybody know what the staff is for?

p.s. … no that’s not me in the picture 😉
