I'm less than two weeks from my defense date now, and I seem to either imagine everything going really great or have nightmares about how awful it is going to be. I wish I could go around and talk to my committee beforehand. Unfortunately, it won't work that way. I have to wait and see. Uncertain situations have never been my strong suit. I do better when I can plot and plan and know what is going to happen. In this case, its plot and plan, expect the worst, and hope for the best.
