Hello sunshine, I'm closer to fine
I wrote something that got lost. hrm.
I was CC'd a letter from the Dean of the Graduate College stating a Certificate of Result has been sent to my departmental office. Bureaucratically speaking, I am cleared for takeoff.
In truth I am five figures, less than 60 pages, several references and one defense date away.
I keep taking the letter out and looking at it again. It almost seems possible.
I might finish, I might pass.
After ten years prostrate to the higher mind I might get my paper and be free.
