So I have started the journey for my doctoral degree. I'm in week 2 of a 5 week qualification course called DOC/700 "Developing the Doctoral Identity." As long as I make a B or higher, I can move forward. It is a lot of reading and some of the material is really challenging. But everybody keeps telling me that if I made it through a master's degree I can make it through a doctoral degree. I'm happy that I am doing this but it is a lot of work. But I just keep imagining myself at graduation wearing my doctoral regalia. That is what keeps me going.
