Going, Going... G O N E!
There is nothing so sweet as the feeling you get after checking a big item off the "to do" list. I just sent my first five chapters to my advisors, just over 100 pages' worth of dissertation*. I figure I have about 60-80 pages left to write on this thing, and then it's DONE. I'm sure my perfectionist advisors will have pages and pages of comments and mulitudes of questions for me, but for now the draft is beautiful as is because it's not on my desk anymore.

Here ends the blogging explosion for the day. Off to admire my new faucet.

* Honestly, this figure was a bit disappointing to me because I've been writing for ages. Only 100 pages? But then I realized that I'd probably deleted 40 pages here and there, I'd completely rewritten Chapter 2 twice and Chapter 3 once... these 100 or so pages are just the "keepers."
