Well, I’m 15 pages away from being finished with reaching the 120-page minimum for my thesis.  So that’s the progress of the day.

Can someone get me a cookie?  They’re in the freezer.

    That’s awesome! Congrats. You can spin out 15 pages in your sleep, darlin’.

    Have they raised the minimum? In my day, it was only a 100-page minimum. At least, that’s all I turned in. …And we were happy to have it, damnit!

    You mean I finished and didn’t even know it? That’s even better. I think you may be right on the 100 minimum — maybe the 120 is a max or something? That’s the number that’s stuck in my head.

  3. Pasquino says:

    Yep — 100-page min, 120-page max. I suggest you put a period after the last word you wrote, save your draft and back it up a few times, then go get a frozen coffee w/ground up chocolate covered coffee beans from the drive-thru place on Willamette to celebrate. You’ll feel good about it, and I’ll feel happy knowing you’ve got the shakes. Win!

    Is this the point at which I mention it’s in courier? Which is, by the way, a thesis-approved font, but it takes some of the accomplishment out of the thing.

    Still. Frozen goodness, yes.

    Pfft…courier schmourier. Could be 24pt wingdings. Do what you have to do to reach the page limit then move on. You’re not creating art. You’re jumping through a hoop. Art can wait. Coffee can’t.
