2nd Anniversary

Two years ago today, smarting from having just failed my dissertation prospectus defense, I wrote the following to my blog, my eponymously-titled, first-ever post:

I didn't pass the defense of my dissertation prospectus yesterday. I'm not mad, just disappointed. If I weren't married I would've gone and gotten drunk---- well maybe not. I haven't had a drink in 14 years. No one will read this anyway.

On Thursday, I will defend my dissertation. Provided all goes well, I will be John McLarty Williams III, PhD. Hopefully we can avoid those same dark feelings that arose in the face of my adversity two years ago. Much has transpired in my life since then. Enjoy these links to my favorite posts during the last two years. Please take the time to review them, and give me your vote for your favorite one. Mine is a tie between 6, 10, & 20. No one will read these anyway.

Wow, hard to believe that you've been blogging now for over two years. I think I'm partial of 7 and 21 on your list, but there are some many other goods ones not listed here. Best of luck on your defense tomorrow.

Mac,
Knowing Marley like I do, I'm going to have to vote for 1 - and no, it wasn't the only one that I read.
