My examiner committee has finally been approved, so I can now finally submit the five copies I have previously made. Now all I need to do is pass the final exam on August 2nd and submit some more forms and the final copies of thesis and I'm done!

PhD comics: Thesis Submission

"Piled Higher and Deeper" by Jorge Cham

Submission. That's an interesting word. The American Heritage Dictionary defines it as:

Submission. n.

    1. The act of submitting to the power of another.

    2. The state of having submitted.

  1. The state of being submissive or compliant; meekness.

  2. The act of submitting something for consideration.

Am I relinquishing power or being meek and compliant by handing in my thesis? Does Nature (or the examiner committee as an agent thereof) have control of my future? Or am I thinking too much?
