Six years down, one week to go

My thesis has been written and handed out to my committee, and my Ph.D. defense is one week from today. So don't expect a lot of posting this week- even though I didn't think I'd be nervous, I'm starting to freak out, just a little bit.

In other news, my Australia trip is now only two weeks away, and the job search continues- I have an interview today with a scientific publishing group in the Netherlands. Things are looking up!

Good luck with the thesis defense - I'm sure you'll nail it. Focus on the defense first and Australia second. Even though it's a long flight, you'll enjoy it when everything PhD related is behind you!

Good luck on your defense.

All I can think of, though, when I hear of something like this is me standing in front of some critical committee, saying, "F*** you! This is a great thesis! What the f*** do you know?"
