I turned my paper in to "Advisor" earlier this week. He actually read it and sent me feedback within three days. THREE DAYS. Usually I am pumped if I get and recognition of my work within three weeks! And good news: I have some changes to make but they don't seem unreasonable or impossible. My committee should have my paper next week!
APRIL. Sweet Jesus.
April 8 - 14:
Finish paper, send to committee
Finish all University Bullshit Paperwork to graduate
Finish reading books and articles from my Reading List (about 8 items out of 30 at this point)
Try to finagle two or three days off form work to prepare for...
April 15 -17:
My exam! I will get six questions, two from each member of my committee. The questions are based on my reading list. I have to write three essays in response to three of the questions (my choice) over three days.
April 19 - 20:
Out of town for Spring meeting for work
April 21 - 25:
Also, will have to work on presentation for Master's (bummer)
Sometime April 26 - 29:
Present and defend my paper and essay questions.
Oh. My. God.
How the fuck this paper is not A Thesis I do not know. It features primary research. It is just re-arranged in "article" format rather than chapter format.
I shall stop wondering why this is not A Thesis. It is making me bitter.
I dreamt the other night that I WAS KATE MIDDLETON.
Yes, I may have purchased the issue of Life about William and Kate. But I really do not think I am obsessing over The Royal Wedding.
How does your April look?
Happy Friday to you!
