Deadline Day!

4082 / 5000 words. 82% done!

Unfortunately, I’m apparently not a very good English major, because I must use little words. The above word count only represents 10 1/2 pages. :P I was hampered by a fairly busy weekend (wedding shower, BYU football game, etc.), and yesterday I didn’t get nearly as much work done as I should have, because I felt a little sick. Turned out I’d put my contacts in the wrong eyes that morning, which had given me a headache, which made me dizzy, and so on, and so forth. So my grand total wasn’t as much as it should have been.

However, Dr. Walker was pleased with what I had gotten done. 10 1/2 pages, after all, is better than no pages at all. We talked about what I planned on doing further (I started in the middle, so I have to go back and write the introduction, lay a foundation, etc.), what sources I planned to bring in, where I needed more commentary, and stuff like that. He wants a full first draft by Oct. 13, two weeks from today. He would have wanted it by next Tuesday, but I’m leaving for Disneyland that day, so that won’t work. :P

Even though I didn’t fully meet my goal, I’m still really proud of myself. After 5 years of work, I finally have something to show for it. 10 1/2 pages of my own writing, on my thesis topic.

I’ll take it.
