Progress Is Being Made

I just turned in the first revision of La Dissertation! Yay! At this point, I'm looking at a late April defense (if I can pin my advisor down long enough to schedule it). I am definitely good for time. There's time for at least one more revision, possibly even two, before I'd have to defend. This is a good position to be in.

Now, if only I could get a job . . .

April is a lucky month to defend in. I defended on 4/5 and got a job offer at my first choice school on 4/6.

You'll get a job. It's just a waiting game.

And congrats on getting the revision in!!

I hope April turns out lucky for me. I'm fairly sure the defense will go well, given that I have so much time to make La Dissertation as perfect as it can be. And I'll have that trip to Ireland at the beginning of the month, and I'm hoping to be able to visit with Dot for a bit.

Just keep sending good Pony!job vibes out there!

Congratulations, Pony. You deserve a nice break.

You're smart and you know your stuff. I have a feeling you'll get a great job that you love.

It is kind of nice to have nothing to do for a few days but write a quick paper on Holocaust memorials (shades of Le Thesis!) and plan a trip to Ireland. And La Dissertation can only get better from here on out. There's two drafts of a complete text. There's no way I can't defend at this point. I think I'm gonna graduate . . .

I hope I get a good job. Maybe not the first year out, but pretty soon.

Off to recover from writing a big paper by . . . writing a little paper. Dear God, what has my life become?

At least I get a vacation in Ireland. Speaking of which, must go register for the conference.
