I have completed my MFA Thesis, it has been accepted and my MFA degree is now complete.
My degree will post to my official record as of June 30, 2015, and as such, my new signature will be:

Emily Vieweg, MFA

Today I don't have many words of my own, I am over the moon with excitement and joy, so thrilled to have completed this journey, and now ready for a couple months rest before tackling the next big challenge:  Teaching my teenager to drive!!!

Thank you to my family and friends who have supported me through this journey, for sacrificing time and energy, for poking me with a stick when I really deserved a cattle-prod, and for hugging me when I didn't want one but needed it.

Here's to the future, to following my dream and earning a degree that will allow me to teach students how to love the creative word.
