today. or an Anxious


I woke up with the sudden realization of how much I have to accomplish on my disseration and how little time there is between now and summer 2008. June/July, 2008, is the month I hope to earn my doctoral degree or as the schools so pompously call it – have my doctoral degree “conferred” on me. WTH? Just give me the freakin’ piece of paper – now!

Actually the master’s diploma I was provided with after earning that degree in 2005, had my name mis-spelled and I am still waiting for a corrected version.

I’m doing my best today to keep putting one foot in front of the other and to remind myself to take a deep breath.

One bright spot in my day is that a new episode of Boston Legal is scheduled to be on tonight. I love that show!
