PASSED my dissertation defense

first off, many apologies for delaying this post and not posting it yesterday. i hope you understand that i was so intense before my defense (it is actually called a viva in the uk) and so ecstatic after i passed that this blog post was delayed. indeed, as you have been with me since the start, i cannot imaging that i forgot to share the great news with you all. it has been a great journey, but a journey that i am happy to see come to an end as i prepare for the next chapter in life.

the viva went really well, and i knew about halfway through that i had completed the requirements to be awarded the degree of phd. it feel freekin' awesome. i can't put it into words. there was such a sense of relief and weights being lifted off of my shoulders when i heard the words: "congratulations dr. hylick, you have passed your viva and are awarded the degree of phd with minor corrections." such a sweet reward from a long journey a LONG way from home.

i guess that is the beauty of it all. you work hard for it and earn the achievement, and you feel such a euphoric feeling of happiness and sense of accomplishment that is only temporary as a feeling, but PERMANENT in terms of a lifetime of confidence in your ability to achieve this and any other goal going forward simply by thinking about this event in time.

this blog has really helped me to maintain my sanity through this arduous process that is a phd, but too, it has forced me to really learn how to think through and articulate feelings that otherwise may go unspoken. i hope that reading this blog through my journey has provided, not only entertainment and updates, but also a 'survival guide' if you will that will help others navigate the graduate school process.

there will be more posts as the next few weeks roll by, but i will be sending out links to my new blog to share some other passions that i have been working on for about 2 years now. thank you for riding with thus far, and do continue to press on until victory is won!!! in the famous words of jimmy v "don't give up, don't ever give up."

Congrats on the PHD it should indeed be of help to you. Make your next project study of the Bible and the ramifications for dismissing the information contained therein. Life is short and eternity is long. Choosing to accept that God loves us and His son Jesus died for our sins or to reject that the Bible is word of God will be most important decision that can be made in this life. If choice is made to reject the gift of forgiveness of our sin then at least if wrong we will not be surprised at judgment time whether we like it or not.
