Ramblings about what I encounter within the realm of the geosciences, as well as the occasional rant about nonsense.

Wherein I have finished a house of cards


I finished a draft of that damnable tome!!!!

After developing a sleep problem (of the not variety), a couple of bizarre rants on teacups, and not making anything that would qualify as "contact" with another living being for extended periods of time, I have managed to send a draft of my thesis to the advisor.

I only had to teach Word a bunch of terms (that is how you know good science). And it only killed my last laptop in a most grueling fashion. But now, I win! Sure, it will come back in a few weeks looking worse than before, but I can live in blissful anticipation of my house of cards being knocked down.

This sums up how I felt while writing:
Now to await the inevitable sequel.

these moments of accomplishment almost make up for the weeks of feeling like I am stuck in the mud. I also hope Jim goes easy, or at least I can figure out what he wants.



All the Latin on this page is from my vague recollections from High School. There are mistakes in the text. I just was trying to get the point across
