It's Hard to Believe

how real this whole PhD thing is feeling. We had a group dissertation meeting tonight and it was just so nice to talk to people who are in the process and for the first time feel like I am the one that everyone is looking at thinking, "That's going to be me soon." I've had that same thought for nearly 5 years; let me assure you, the grass really is greener.

The only negative is now I am getting the "what are your plans" question over and over and over. I don't have an exact answer. And what I really want to say is, "Get really drunk and sleep for three days." Clearly not an appropriate answer in most academic circles! And, in all practicality, that is not going to happen.

I am sorting of feeling a little lost. Seriously, who would have thought that I would miss my dissertation? But I am sort of feeling that way. -- sigh --

It amazes me sometimes that people can't just simply bask in the joy of another's moment.

I'm rejoicing in your accomplishment. Now is not the time for plans. Now is the time to simply Be. Because you are a rock star.
