The year of the THESIS.
Eek. I actually worked out the LaTeX template yesterday and looked over my outline yesterday.
I wonder how it will go? I generally feel good about it. I'm confident in the collection of stuff I have to put into it. The data is solid, much of it is at least preliminarily analysed. Much of it is published or at least submitted. But what else will I learn? I came up with so many new ideas and interpretations while writing my MSc thesis, I'm kind of curious to see what will fall out this time.
And of course I can't wait to wear the floppy hat. THAT is a bold fashion statement.
And then there is the "I wonder where I'll be next year at this time?" California? Germany? Freezing my arse off in Edmonton? Will I follow the project I can't stop thinking about? Or go for a big name place? It's all exciting, but I'm not so good with uncertainty.
Why does every year seem like a BIG year these days.
Here we go.... Wheeeeeeee!
