That is not to say that the job is done. Of course, the manuscript will be read, it will get comments, and I need to revise it. I am not looking forward to that, but it must be done, or else this won't be over. I also have some papers to write, as my goal is to publish bits and pieces of my dissertation in journals, so that I can prove what I can do to the greater academic community. I am also job hunting all over the place.
But, for a week, I can take things slow. My adviser is not here, he is out of town, and he is reading my manuscript. While he is gone, I can recharge for a bit, bum around a little, and attend a wedding.
Oh yeah, there's a wedding. It's about 2000 miles away. I am leaving tomorrow. Watch out for photographs.
