Classes resumed today. I am teaching 3 this fall. My big class of 51 met at 8 AM and it went flawlessly. These are the days when all the hard work and preparation pay off. And you feel it might even be worth it. Of course, it helps that I have the best students in the world!
As some of you know, I’ve been working for over a year (15 months to be exact) on this dissertation – it’s become the biggest thing in my life. Like a 35 pound tumor.
Today I handed the entire mass over to my 2 other committee members and now must await their feedback. I expect to get their recommended changes back within 2 weeks.
The biggest news may be that I turned the whole tumor over to the formatter who will get a draft ready to send to the
after final approval by my chair. That’s a big step (among many little steps). I don't think I've ever enjoyed hitting "send" more. Graduate School
I’m elated. I can literally breathe easier today. I feel my lungs expanding and a decreased airway resistance. Good stuff. Can this be the beginning of the beginning of the end? Much remains to be done but I AM closer!
Other big news: rvsue and her canine crew picked up their long-awaited Casita at the factory yesterday and are now officially full-timers. Congratulations Sue & Crew! I couldn’t be happier for you.
Thanks for letting me share. I truly appreciate the support I receive from you all!
