I am in the final day of my thesis. Yes, I said final day, as in singular! I was hoping to finish it up yesterday but Word formatting and I are having a bit of a standoff. For those of you fortunate enough to never have written a scientific research paper, let me fill you in. They have this sneaky set of guidelines and parameters that differs from any other type of paper that you will need to write in this world.
What do I mean by parameters? Different margins, pagination, layout of text with tables, appendices, etc. I thought I was going to be able to finish it yesterday, but lo and behold, my new margins jacked up my pagination, and I got launched into Microsoft Word hell.
But never fear! I have wonderful friends who are helping me as we speak. I will finish this 71-page paper today! I might even take a photo as I stick that big ol’ envelope in the mail, sending it off to my adviser where it will be evaluated, published, and never seen by my again. Ever. Ever. Ever in my whole life. And I’m quite okay with that!
So, in light of this important drama, I’m going to disappear from blog world for the rest of the week. Try not to cry though: I will be back next week with my (hopefully!) anticipated recap of the Warrior Dash, complete with epic GoPro footage. And naturally, lots of other fun stories as well 🙂
