Over the next few weeks, I will be working deliriously in order to finish The Thesis. I attended a thesis workshop yesterday afternoon, during which someone from the graduate office hands out various forms and information, tells you about all the deadlines, scares you to death, and then sends you on your way, worrying about the fact that you will not, in fact, graduate. My favorite part of the whole workshop: I was handed a one-page listing of Common Errors in Grammar. I am a graduate student in English; should I be offended?
If I become too engrossed in my own turmoil throughout this process, feel free to point out my narcissistic ways - or just send me a bottle of wine or some chocolate.
