Did I mention that my thesis is due Friday? (I know I did. My tenterhooks are on tenterhooks about this.)
I haven't gotten it back from the second reader yet. I emailed her today. She's part of my reviewing panel as well, but there are few ways to say Are you done yet? without sounding at least a little antagonizing.
The end of the semester is temporally so near (less than three weeks!) but still so far away in terms of shittogetdone.
