I’m Back! Say Hello To Dr. Gonzales!

Hey Guys! Hope everyone has been doing awesome. Some of you regular readers may have noticed that I’ve been blogging  and doing video reviews pretty inconsistently over the last 6 months. There’s a perfectly good reason, and it’s not because I’ve fallen out of love with indie T-Shirts. Over the last couple of months I’ve been making the final push towards finishing graduat school, defending my dissertation and earning my Ph.D. in Psychology. Well, I am happy to say that I have finally completed this particularly grueling journey in my life and am now Dr. (or Professor) Coty J. Gonzales. How awesome is that?!

I thought that it was appropriate that I mentioned this life accomplishment on this blog, for two reasons. First, I started this blog as a way to de-stress way back in 2008 when I completed my Masters thesis defense. So in many ways, this T-Shirt blog exists because of my academic pursuits. Second, I’ve developed a lot of awesome relationships with YOU – the readers of this blog. I’ve shared with you some of the greatest moments in my life over the last couple of years, and this one might be the biggest so far.

With that said, we can now get back to blogging!

Here’s a pic of me after I successfully completed my defense. I didn’t wear a T-Shirt, but I did wear an awesome Johnny Cupcakes tie (you can kind of see it in the pic). Hey, I had to “tie” in the indie T-Shirt world somehow!

Here’s a pic of me with my Dissertation advisor. You can see the Johnny Cupcakes tie a lot better in this one!
