Big Day

Well I am happy to report I survived the Big Day. I don’t think I’ve ever been as nervous about anything before in my life. Honestly I really had no reason to be so upset. I was very well prepared and everything went fine. However, I couldn’t really bring myself to eat beforehand and I had become very well acquainted with the bottle of Pepto. Afterwards I made sure I got just as acquainted with a bottle of red wine. Of course that meant I had an emotional meltdown on the way home in the car… I have about three weeks to complete my final round of corrections and then graduation. Phew.

I decided to cut loose from my desk for a few days before getting back to work and spend some quality time with my friends. Went to the late night comedy club last night and busted a gut. I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time. I’m definitely not waiting too long to go back again.

Need to break the twice a month habit.

Ok, so I have gotten REALLY lazy about my blog. Although, it might have something to do with never leaving my desk. So, one week and counting until I defend my thesis. Right now it is hard to tell weather the light at the end of the tunnel means the end is near or the freight train is barreling down at 100+ miles per hour. Although I have been more productive in the last few month then ever before I still have my meltdown moments.

I joined a book club and it is a totally great reason to bug out from work. I really enjoyed it, and I think I found the discussion even more fun then reading the book and I also really liked all the people I met. Should have done that a lot earlier! Well, that all that’s new on my horizon. Everyone pray I survive till graduation!
