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.
