I got back the edit from my adviser!!!!!

This means I can actually finish up the “final” draft of my paper.  Then I can do the oral defense and, if necessary, do the final-final draft of the thesis.  THEN I’M DONE!!!

Thus and therefore, after lunch, I am heading to Starbucks where I will hopefully finish up the edits today.

Let’s all heave a big sigh of relief: The end is nigh.
