I feel like I should make a post, now, at 2 am. But I also feel that anything I write will be incomplete until the weekend is over.
So for those of you who don’t know, I passed my PhD Proposal Defense on Tuesday. So other than some coursework, this was literally my last hurdle before I go up to defend the real deal next May! crosses fingers
The experience left me drained more than excited. But in celebration, I ate some things that I knew would hurt my stomach. And they did. However, I resisted buying Newman-O’s. Chocolate is almost entirely out of my diet. For shame. I *love* chocolate!
On the other hand, I feel that my private life is moving in the right direction. ::knock on wood:: Garrick made a comment a while back that went something along the lines of me being “75% recovered”. I took exception to that at the time, but now I think I know what he was driving at. Hopefully I am closer. Garrick also has a way of sticking numbers to things which really ain’t got no business havin’ numbers on ‘em.
So between the PhD drain and the private positives, I feel very manic when I am alone. Whatever recent experience my mind decides to replay is what emotional state I fall into. Here’s to the next couple of days bringing more good things to focus on for the week ahead!
Goodnight, Austin, Texas where ever you are.
