It’s been a while since I’ve updated anything writing related and that’s because another little project has been in full gear–my thesis.
It’s been satisfying to finalize some things that have been sitting in limbo for a while, but it hasn’t been without frustrations. I believe they’re outside the realm of what are considered normal grad school problems (even some of these I think are intolerable and it’s appalling that they are acceptable in the academic community). I won’t go into great detail but suffice it to say that the entire experience has been quite a trial. The struggle to find the self motivation to finish is common, from what I hear.
On a quick tangent, I’m doing this update on my new samsung galaxy s vibrant phone. I’ve waited a long time to get a nice phone and using swype text to type this out is an indication of my enthusiasm 🙂 I’m long overdue for gadgetry that’s more at pace with the world. Hooray!
I’m aiming to have a draft ready by the end of the month, that is to say a week from today. Wish me luck! This writer is not in hiatus. He’s just working on a document no one is likely going to read.
