I just completed my Master's Degree!
« on: May 22, 2010, 01:10:21 AM »
I have occasionally asked for prayers on here regarding assignments, tests, et cetera, and I just wanted to offer up thanksgiving and brag a little bit (if I can) and say that I just passed my exit exams. I now have a MA in Religious Studies. Not sure what I'll do with it, but at least I have it!

I just hope you have a strong undergrad degree...this coming from someone with a Masters of Theological Studies. ;)

Congratulations, and best of luck with your future.
