I can’t believe it’s Friday already. In case you’re wondering where I disappeared to, I’ve been prepping for my defense. Also, work has been crazy busy. It’s been a mostly productive week, though I didn’t get everything I wanted to get done completed. I am kind of wigging out about the defense. There are parts of my thesis I’m really confident about and there are parts that I’m less so. I’ve read it so many times now, I’m acutely aware of its weaknesses. I do plan to do something with the thesis–an article, a book maybe–so I’m holding off on changing anything until the defense is over.
Mostly, I’m trying not to feel ill. I’ll be on vacation the next week, and unfortunately, I think I’ll still be doing a little bit of work for my defense. Maybe our fellow houseguests will allow me a run through. I’m hoping I can relax a little and not stress out too much over the defense. It’s hard to believe that in just over a week, it will be over.
