now i need to get all these edits approved by the head honcho, write a conclusion (i have to conclude something? yuck!), edit my appendix proof, re-edit everything, send it off to the rest of my committee, re-edit again, find an external examiner, fix up my footnotes and formatting, write an abstract (ha ha ha, yeah right), and then declare it done and send it off.
then i get to defend, throw up in front of everyone or start shaking uncontrollably in nervousness and hypoglycemia (domestic feminist has seen this, tonnes of fun!) generally make a fool of myself, maybe even get tongue tied, yay! fun for all! i even plan on inviting all the lower years so they get to see how its done! oh goody!
then i get to re-edit everything, and maybe send off copies to people who have inspired me, like the guy who wrote the book i quote all the time, and my old boss who let me use this data.
then a few years later, i will look at it again and maybe make it into a few articles.
oh, yeah, i feel great after writing all that out. so much to look forward to!
(can you tell i come from a long line of sarcastic people?)
