Today, is my wife’s thesis defense in structural geology. And she’s going to kick its ass. I’m super proud of her. She’s worked incredibly hard the past two and a half years taking required classes, doing research in the field, interpreting enormous amounts of data and producing over 100 pages and diagrams of a written thesis. Sometimes she would be gone for a week at a time in the woods and national parks of North Carolina studying and collecting rock samples, camping and hiking to various locations. I couldn’t begin to explain what her research is about, but I know it deals with some pretty badass geologic history of the Appalachian area of the US.
We made up a LEGO version of her in her field vest, field pants, and with her trusty rock hammer. So here’s to you baby! My wife, the geologist. Congratulations!
UPDATE: She passed!
