A big congratulations to my husband, Dr. Eric Niven, who completed his PhD and convocated last week. The last five years have been a roller coaster and I am so proud of Eric for all of his hard work.
Although the ceremony was long, it was surprisingly emotional to watch Eric watch across that stage. I shed a couple of tears and beamed with pride during the ceremony. I am so grateful that Eric is done and that his hard work has finally paid off. Eric’s parents, Dave and Brenda were also there to help celebrate.
Obtaining PhD and life in academia are often romanticized, however, it is a gruelling career path. If you want an idea of what grad school is actually like check out PhD Comics. Naturally, my favorites are the PhD widows. Let’s just say these comics are funny because they are true.
Congrats Dr. Niven! Promise me no post-docs are in the works!
