1. Am I really almost done?: 15:57

Excited hamster

2 years. 73 pages. 16,394 words. Am I really almost done?

I've spent the last two years of my life working on my master's degree. My thesis defense has been booked for August 8. I'm putting the finishing touches on my thesis about using Web 2.0 to find expertise. Tomorrow, I'm going to wrestle with page numbers and formatting. On Wednesday, I'll print out my thesis for my committee members.

Can I really be so close to finishing?

And am I really so close to being able to do all the things I've been planning to do once I get out into the Real World?

Watch out! This will be fun!
