Thanks! My committee signed off on my document but I have to add on a conclusion chapter to it by my defense. So it seems like every day I get to go over one more hurdle, but I am starting to think more positively.

I hope that dissertation draft went well SOAPSANDROPES with your committee!! emoticon

I don't know though... the thesis certainly doesn't feel like a "dot" to me... especially with the way the job market is right now. University departments are hurting -- even ones like mine that are normally loaded with grant money.

I am so focusing on the "dot". Dissertation draft is due to my committee tomorrow and I am still working on the discussion section for one of the chapters, and I don't want to think about formatting! How do you tell yourself if it not a big deal when it is the biggest thing that you have done so far?

Thanks for posting this! It's interesting on how wrapped up about insignificant things we get!
