Draft done

It is April 18, 2010, 2:35 AM, HST, and I just sent the complete draft to my committee chair. All the way from the title page to the bibliography. 162 pages of yummy academia. (Which, fine, is kind of short for like a humanities dissertation, but experimental ones are often shorter).

So I'm all Hoo-Yaa! and stuff while simultaneously being exhausted. I'm going to celebrate by only working tomorrow evening for the first time in a month. Seriously, I haven't put in less than 14 hours a day in a long while. Average has to be higher.

Not quite done yet though. My chair will have revisions. Then I will defend and probably have even more revisions from the committee which will be finished over the summer.

But... getting there.

I will yell once my defense date is set -- probably early May, which is like 3 weeks or less.

Maybe you'll have more time for the really important stuff now. Like your blog! :o)

Congratulations! You're almost done!

You realize once this is all over, you'll have to post pix of you in your uber-fancy robes, right?

That's great news. I hope you can get everyone into the same room for the defence sooner rather than later!

You'll be a helluva defender! I have complete faith and confidence in your ability to kick major verbal butt.

Wow! Well done!
I'm sure the length is fine- my Bro's thesis was 400 pages and it was sooooooooooo much a case of not having had time to make it shorter. I read through it thinking of all the stuff he could have left out. You'll be up to your ears in brownie points for being concise!
