Dissertation Dump: Part II

Today I delivered the Big D to my committee members. It only took about 2 hours last night to print the beast. All this extra hoopla with sending pages through the printer twice in order to get the tables with horizontal orientation on the page correctly. Then, of course, I made a mistake in the title (geez, of all places!) and had to reprint the 5 title pages this morning before I made deliveries.

It hasn't quite hit me yet. I'm done. I wrote a dissertation and I will be a Ph.D. in a few short weeks. It could be the fact that in the midst of this dissertation culmination I also got the last round of revisions on a book chapter out and a revise and resubmit finished on a journal article. Could it actually be that I am on my way to becoming a professor? Might I actually be getting the hang of this gig??

Stay tuned......I need to go pack my bags. I have an early flight out tomorrow morning for a conference.

You're bringing back nightmares for me with the two-feed printing. I decided to print double-sided using a non-duplex printer, so I had to feed the pages through twice. The paper was curling after the first pass through the printer and kept misfeeding and grabbing multiple pages at a time on the second pass. Took me like six hours (starting at midnight) to print the thing out, since I needed to FedEx it by noon the next day. Ugh.
