•Day 03 — Your favorite television program
•Day 04 — Your favorite book
•Day 05 — Your favorite quote

Overdue chapter--SHE FINISHED HER DISSERTATION LAST SUMMER. SHE DEFENDED IT, AND SHE PASSED. SHE GRADUATED WITH A PhD IN THE WINTER. Whew, so glad that is over. She's thankful that she did it, and she's grateful for everyone's support. She realizes everyday, even in the smallest of things, the people that the graduate school experience brought her, the lessons that it taught her, and the experiences that it delivered to her are immeasurable.
