Back in the land of the socially interactive  
Just waving to say that thesis of doom has been successfully handed in :-)

About 100 pages, 16 illustrations. And one grand final battle with MS word, 'cause apparently Word likes eating graphic layouts and formats for breakfast ...

But, yay, it's done!

HAHA, Word does that, yes. :)

Well done - scrolled through it - forgive me for not reading it again - klooked very good. :) Good luck!

forgive me for not reading it again

Methinks, you're perfectly excused;-) Just wanted to give you an idea about the visuals :-)

Seriously, your feedback/editing has been a tremendous source of support in both the "Improve finished product" and "Help Bimo keep her motivation and sanity intact" department.

Yes. Enjoyed the photos - really cool stuff, especially the husband with the kitchen towel around his head. HAHA! Like a Trekie marriage. :)

My pleasure - I found is genuinely interesting. Good luck with the rest!

Aw, thank you! :-)

Trust me, I'm so happy to be able to jump into the "sandbox" again, instead of just watching all the other folks playing :-)

MUAHAHA. And You'll have to read Stone Dance when I do it. :)

Something written by you, in "literary mode", on a topic I might actually enjoy?

Wouldn't miss that for anything in the world! :-)
Vashtanvashtan on April 2nd, 2009 09:42 am (UTC)
Ha! I win. :)

(I pitched it, and it was met with interest, so, yeah. :) That's the next thing after the re-work of ROI).

Yay indeed! Congratulations. That must be a huge relief. :-)

That must be a huge relief. :-)

Most definitely :-)

Once I had handed the manuscript in and stood out there, on the campus grounds, in the sun, I could almost feel my brain sending a "Stop producing adrenaline! Now!" message to the rest of my body.

It is only now that my sleep pattern is finally returning back to normal.

Many congratulations. And well done for conquering MS Word let alone the thesis :)

Writing the thesis was actually a surprisingly positive experience, well, apart from the fact that it had to be handed in on a certain date by latest ;-)

But MS Word? Just not equipped for dealing with documents longer than 50 pages. So I wrote each chapter in a single file of its own, in order to create a "central document" in the end. And that was the point when chaos broke loose..

Whoa. I'm so happy for you. You must be dancing through the streets. Do your feet still touch the ground? ;o)

Barely, just barely ;-)
