Can I Hear An AMEN?

T plus one hour and thirteen minutes. Le Thesis is DONE, DONE, DONE. Finito. Printed, copied, binder-clipped, enveloped, dropped off at the I.N.P.O.D.'s mailbox. It has shuffled off this mortal coil, rung down the curtain, and joined the choir invisible. This is an ex-thesis.

I, French Pony, have written one hundred thirty-four pages (that's with the appendices and bibliography, of course) of solid academia. There'll be a defense in April, and probably some revisions, but Le Thesis is DONE!


Now, I will nap. And then I will play tomorrow. And go out to dinner with a friend. And think about the conference I get to attend next weekend, where I will be Presenting A Paper for the very first time. Next installment of Pony's life: her academic debut. I feel like I should wear white for my presentation. . .

Congratulations!!!! I'm going to a conference next week too. Mine is in Chicago. Where's yours?

Thank you! I really feel like I've produced something big and worthwhile. Le Dissertation looms in the future, but right now I'm pretty happy just to have finished Le Thesis.

My conference is in lovely, scenic Bowling Green, Ohio, at Bowling Green State University. It's called "Trajectories of Memory: The Holocaust in History and the Arts." I'm giving a paper about music in Holocaust-themed film. One lady who wrote a book that I used for Le Thesis is going to be at this conference! That's so exciting.

I remember that you said that there was one conference that you went to every year. Is it this one? And is it always in Chicago? Because I'll be back in Chicago next year. . .

I go to two conferences every year, one in October and one in March. They move around. This March one will be in NY next year. They do that so people from different parts of the country can go.

Oh, well. New York is okay, too. I have a friend who's working in the theater there. If you're looking for something to do, I can find out from him what the good shows are.
