Except for fixing (what seems like a) minor formatting glitch, and for dealing with the Table of Contents, I'm.... done.
Now, done does not mean done-done. I've still got the index ahead of me. And permissions. But yes, it's true. I worked for like 9 hours today - 7 of which in my office at school (with the odd interruption from a colleague giving me chocolate, because I looked like I needed it, and a brief chat with a student) - and apparently I am.... done.
And I am fucking exhausted.
And I haven't prepped for tomorrow.
And I haven't graded.
And I really need to pay my bills (though thankfully I did remember to pay rent).
And I seem to be losing my voice (although I have no idea why, as it's not like I've been talking much).
But I am.... done(ish).
I don't even know how to talk about it.
Time to enjoy a glass of wine, and to get ready to watch The Hills.
You might be interested to know that the formatting problem I described was totally silly and it took me approximately 15 mins. to fix. Everything is done! Done! And only one day after my internal deadline to be done! I'm really, really pleased with myself about this. Now it's time for me to have a much-needed night of relaxation (although I should grade, but look: I deserve a little break after yesterday's marathon). And thanks for the congrats, y'all. You know, I really feel like I should thank my blogging peeps in the acknowledgments, but that would surely out me, no? So I keep trying to come up with a euphemism for "blogging peeps" that sounds scholarly and serious.... and that doesn't actually mention "blogging." Any ideas?
