What a great last few days for me. I was able to spend some great time with the family at Golden Lake in North Dakota over the weekend celebrating an achievement. Yes, I am one step closer to reaching my goal. I graduated on Friday with my Master of Arts degree in History from UND. I hope to eventually place either a photo or video up, but needless to say, I am quite relieved to be finished. Right now, I am getting ready to submit my thesis for copies to be bound for my committee, department, and family. I have a short break before beginning my doctoral work, but look forward to starting it. I now heave a sigh of relief.
