Once More, With Feeling

Fall break is here at last. I could not have been more ready for it. I was in serious need of a long weekend without any looming deadlines.

With midterms finished, the semester is half over. This has interesting implications. The whole program is three semesters long, so if I'm done with 1.5 semesters, then I am halfway done with the degree.

I want to say that again.

I am halfway done!

Holy hell, you guys! I'm happy and proud of myself but part of my brain is just freaking right out at this idea.

Since May I've poured an moderately ridiculous amount of work and effort into this-- I don't even want to calculate how many hours. Being at the halfway point means I say to myself, "See those last six months? Go ahead and do all that one more time."


  1. Semester's almost over...then you will be 2/3rds done!

  2. I know! But the key word there is "almost." I have just a week left, but it's finals week, which means there is still an awful lot of work between here and the milestone.
