grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

knit me more time...

no more drafts

I finally (and kind of easily, actually) have a date and time for my thesis defense. Monday Dec. 13th at 10am. I emailed my advisor about it earler and suggested she might want to read some parts of my thesis again that I changed a lot since the last draft. Nope. She doesn't. She said she has said all she has to say about it*. She cc'd everyone on my committee so I guess that is the final word then. Now all of a sudden, after months of cringing at the words "one more draft" I'd really like one more draft please. What if I get all freaked out in the next week, decide the thesis sucks and start cutting and changing it with reckless abandon? What if the last round of changes I made as per comments from the last draft was totally off track and crazy? And shouldn't I have someone spell and grammar check this thing before it goes out on its own to some room in Memorial Library? Everyone knows I suck at spelling. This is all very exciting yet completely torturous all at once. This is the stuff that keeps me from falling back to sleep when my cat wakes me up at 3am. The thinking-about-how-much-everything-I-have-done-could-be-wrong thoughts. *I wonder how true that really is considering there are articles to get out of this next semester.
