final run

rejoice with me, for i have completed a full draft of The Thesis. as of this morning. it's missing a bunch of citations (by which i mean there are sentences, lots of them, with (CITATION) at the end and no other explantory remarks) and i'm sure it is chock full of structural problems (that i hope will merely require a moving around of already-written sections with minimal adjustment, as opposed to complete rewrites of multiple parts at once), but hey, it's outside of my brain and onto paper.

i turned it in to my BA advisor to have a look over it today, when i went to see him to get some paperwork filed that will, hopefully, allow me to graduate in one piece in nine weeks. now i am sure that when i return on thursday to have a chat with him about the paper itself (as opposed to what we did on spring break, and why i don't seem to know how to fill in paperwork) he will comment that while it's great that i am 'ahead of the curve' in writing this complete draft, and it's great that i have a complete draft, the work itself is utter crap and he will be forced to give me an F for the course. =) but until then, i'm going to bask in the unadulterated glow of accomplishment.

Congratulations on the final draft! Time to take a mini break and go shopping, or something. :) The little off days are important for sanity's sake.
