Not to change the subject, but I'm curious about how all of you went about financing your educations. I finished my bachelors degree six years ago and would really like to start grad school soon, but just can't seem to get an adequate amount of money scraped together.

Lady ell, wonderful!! That is awesome!

In related news, um, I defended a week ago today. I've been Dr. Dragon for a whole week! That's a whole week of heavy drinking, interspersed by wanting to do nothing more than lay around on the sofa and watch Buffy dvds. Eeek!

bump again...
I know I haven't posted here in ages, but I just need to say...

I got the final comments back from my 2nd reader today, and corrected them, and...

well...

My dissertation is, um... totally finished.
(!)

I defend on June 13.
Off to buy acid-free paper now...

That's so cool!!

Aw, I'm just entrenched in thesis writing, Suffering. I'm not teaching so I feel really isolated anyway, as I'm working from home, and my second supervisor is about to go awol (the other one is) so I'll be all alooooone. /whine
