It's taken a really long time. I submitted (September 2014), got through my viva (February 2015), submitted my corrections (August 2015) and got my letter saying my corrections were accepted (September 2015), but I finally got to graduate for my PhD.

It feels slightly disconnected from the effort of finishing the whole thing, but it was bloody lovely to draw that line under it. It was nice that my parents could join us for the day too.

So that's that. All the things done and dusted. Finally, I'm actually a doctor!
