Last post I said I would get the official exam results on September 7th. That's still true.
But my professor called me today to tell me unofficially that I have passed the exam. I am now, for real, a PhD student at Tokyo University!
Goukaku shimashita! Ureshii desu! (I passed! I'm happy!)
Officially I start October 1st, unofficially I can start pretty much right now. Of course the big first task is going to be finding a research topic.
Now let's hope life as a PhD student isn't too much like it's depicted in PHD Comics. :P
