Incidents & Accidents

Sunday, October 17, 2010


I'm trying to finish the first chapter of my dissertation, which is kind of an exciting thing to write, since being able to finish a chapter does bode well for being able to finish the dissertation.

It's writing here that I'm "finishing the chapter," though, that's exciting; the writing of the chapter itself is not so great. I'm trying to get as much done as possible so I can give it to my workshop group tomorrow, for discussion on Wednesday. I don't technically have to give them the entire chapter or anything, but, as I mentioned before, having a chapter done--or done enough to give to my adviser, anyway--is a pretty thrilling prospect (as is getting to on new material! Woo!).

Anyway, I never shared pictures from my birthday, which I celebrated in Florence with Italian friends the Cocos. It was marvelous! More procrastiblogging opportunities will almost certainly arise soon, in which case maybe I'll try to catch you up on the last part of that trip.

Ooh, is that a fruit tart? It looks soooo good.

And congrats on a chapter (nearly) done. That's a huge step in the right direction.

I read this as, "I'm finishing the last chapter of my dissertation..." and thought, wow, she really cranked that out.

Good luck with the first, and I'm sure you will crank it out.

HA! Oh, how I wish it were the last chapter of my dissertation. Thanks for the votes of support, anyway!

And Leah, yes, it was sort of a fruit tart--homemade, not too sweet, with a whole-grain crust and all sorts of delicious! I had the "honor" of cutting it, though, which terrified me.
