Sorry about all these weird, personal, emotional posts lately. I think I’m getting back on an even keel. At least, I hope I am.
I’m feeling optimistic about school and homework, even though I suspect I am behind. But I’m getting there, catching up (again) and maybe this time I will stay caught up. I am also going to ETS this year, which is great. I’m currently a week ahead in my Greek translation (thank you reading break), so that means I will stay ahead until ETS, then I can skip doing Greek that week in good conscience.
I got my abstract back from my prof and his comment was “This is very good. A great start on a very important subject.” And the only other comments/marks on it were few and positive. I was surprised, but perhaps I shouldn’t have been. I got ideas in my head, and it seems that they’re not entirely accurate. I am going to try harder to be fair to this prof (in my estimation of him). I want to have grace for others, just as I hope they have for me.
Now I really need to get a solid thesis statement and outline down. I told myself if I can get it done by November, maybe I can still manage to graduate this year in May. I will have Christmas break (4-5 weeks) to really work on research and writing. But I must have an adviser before then, so… How quickly time flies!
