A done dissertation!

This week has been pretty insane. My sleep debt went up exponentially. I was up all night last night and turned in my final version to my advisor early this morning. My advisor approved it. I finally have a done dissertation. Yep. Done. Its a great feeling! A good dissertation is indeed a done dissertation!

After some logistical things this week, including writing the acknowledgements and getting the editor to check the margins etc. it will finally be in my rear view mirror. I'm the first PhD in my family, but my grandfather's initials were D.R. so I am the new Dr. Academic in my family! Hurrah!
