The end of the line [Jun. 9th, 2008|08:05 pm]
[Current Mood |peacefulpeaceful]

I'm done. Convocation was really great fun. The Chancellor asked me what I was going to do next and when I told him what my job is, he seemed really truly impressed. lol. My parents took me out to a very fancy dinner and then held a cocktail party for friends and family. Everyone said I looked radiant. I think it was due to my dress, a good haircut, and half decent makeup. ;-)

So there you have it. I am officially done and officially impressive. Thanks to everyone here for their support. This blog will now be on hiatus. If you're looking for me, try Clevergirl.

xo Dr. J., PhD.

more amusement with #3 [Feb. 2nd, 2008|02:48 pm]
[Current Mood |amusedamused]

*I found chapter 1. He inserted it just before the conclusion of chapter 2... and inserted it upside down and backwards.

*at the top of pg. 99 he has written someone's name and phone number. Am I supposed to call this person?

*Wherever I've made a "list", this reader has written 1,2,3... above each item and circled it. Not for any reason. It seems. Just to do it.

*In the Reference list, he has placed ticks beside some of the resources. Not sure if this means it's a good thing I used them or if it means he's going to look them up for his own research.

And on the other end of the spectrum... [Feb. 2nd, 2008|02:38 pm]
[Current Mood |amusedamused]

The third one:

* lost one of the binder rings I used to put it together

* did not return the first chapter

*underlined and marked up all over the place. Including just putting random boxes around some titles for no reason.

*and turned a bunch of the pages upside down.

* Oh there are comments, tho... but most are observations and this writing is illegible.

*Ponders what to do with this!*

Three of my committee members (external and two others) returned their marked up hard copies to me so that I could make minor changes. The funny thing there is that I just flipped through one of them in 10 seconds. There is not a single mark in it. He did leave a paper clip on one page and thinking it might be a suggested correction, I turned to it. What is it? Why, he has simply drawn two lines -- one on each page -- in spots where he wanted to remember something a finding for himself.

So, um, I guess this means I can move on to the third one?!
