Today I passed my Preliminary Exam, which is an oral exam at the middle of one's Ph.D. work at my school. On Tuesday I can turn in my signed paperwork and become a dissertator. Then all I have to do is spend the next couple of years to do the research to put into a dissertation (or thesis as it is for some reason always called in my department), write the dissertation (thesis), and do my defense. It sounds simple when I write it out like that.

(The oral exam is like a thesis defense without a thesis. The student presents what he or she has done for the past couple of years and what he or she plans to do in the next couple, the committee then asks questions until the members get bored or have to leave for another meeting. It's supposed to be about demonstrating that one knows the background for one's research and has a plan for doing that research.)

Congratulations, the worst is over unless you really hate typing out the actual dissertation.
It happens because I was in a research group that loved to do experiments and hated to publish.
