Hey, thanks, y'all, for all the congrats on the whole getting published thing. It should be par for the course for someone who does what I do, but this is my first article to be accepted for publication, so it's exciting. Also, the road to getting a PhD has been, shall we say, a little rocky, so it's nice to have some outside validation that my ideas are good and that I'm a competent researcher. This is great timing as well. I'll be on the job market later this year and was really needing something to put on the old c.v.
So thanks, interwebs. I hope your weekend gives you a reason to smile as well.
