Whew!

It's done! 113 pages. Finished a draft on Sunday night at 10:30 and turned it in to my advisor on Monday afternoon. Whew.

Next up: a week of revisions in mid-October then I give copies to my committee. A ten-page written exam later (WTF?) and I defend in late October/early November. If all goes well, I'll be a master by December!

On Sunday, the last day of thesis writing, as SB was heading out with Alex to the Children's Museum to meet some friends, I heard her say, "I miss Mama." Almost stopped working to run out and hug her, but realized that I just needed to keep writing so that I could join my family in the real world again.

somehow I think your universitas has confused "master's project" with "Ph.D. dissertation and defense."

"Dr. K" has a nice ring to it, though.

Thanks for the congrats, everyone! And Caroline, hallelujah! I've been grumbling about the same thing myself. Maybe I'll share your comment with my advisor

Congratulations! It is done! As for that ten-page paper you have to write about your 100-something-page thesis, I now think I remember writing it. I still don't remember what it was about, though.
