Well, tonight we had a modest little party at the lake to celebrate Amanda’s completion of the last requirement of her Master of Biological Science Degree. This is what teachers call a “content area” degree. In other words, it is not an education degree, but a degree in the actual real world content, in this case, biology (as the name of the degree strongly implies). This is a fairly impressive thing for a teacher to do, and she did a good job of it.
Ah, I remember well, that on our very first date we talked about the idea of her getting this degree, and I encouraged her to do it. (You know about that first date if you read this … )
I’m sure some of her “capstone” research was secret, so I can’t tell you much about it, but it has to do with combining body parts of different species to achieve some sort of interesting effect and then make graphs of it. The ultimate outcome will be to stop aging and cure disease and stuff.
So, CONGRATULATIONS AMANDA!!!!!!
