So I was hooded for my PhD today...

I'm not on here much anymore, but for those of you who remember, I was admitted to Lehigh University's English PhD program back in 2010.

Today, I was hooded and tomorrow I will officially be Dr. Cash. Despite the severe expression, I was quite happy in this moment:

In other news, I was offered a tenure-track job at Southwestern Oklahoma State University, so I'm walking out of a doctoral program into an Assistant Professor position, which is unheard of. And we are having our first baby in August.

So life is nuts, but in the best way possible. I was too happy not to share here.

Saw the picture--very distinguished! Again, congratulations, Dr.! Having worked in the graduate program at a major university for many years, I know how much hard work and dedication that took!

Congratulations. I actually have a friend who is a professor at SWOSU. His name is Dave Martin.

I'll probably end up meeting him. The campus community seems super friendly and supportive. Very connected, by all accounts. Which is good, because my wife and I just moved 1500 miles to be here...
