The REAL light at the end of the tunnel...
Most of my days since the last post were spent working on my diss (yes, the four-letter word for dissertation). Most of the days since the last post, I was 99% sure the light at the end of the tunnel was indeed a huge train that was going to just run me over.
After very stressful revisions and rewrites going back and forth between my chair and I and at literally the last possible minutes of the last possible day to file forms that would allow me to defend my diss and graduate in May, it all came together. I will defend on April 25th and unless something goes horribly wrong, I will be Dr. Cory and walk through commencement ceremonies on May 7th! Yahoo!
I guess, the light wasn't a train after all.
