I just turned in my last draft of my senior thesis to my advisor and second reader.
Aside from some minor edits, my last semester is over.
I'm pretty damn excited. A little scared about having to speak at graduation and give my (45 minute!!) senior presentation...but I'm sure I'll get through it.
I think I'm most excited, though, to be able to sit down with my novel on my own time. The hardest part about this "process" has been being forced to qualify my learning, and do things like squeeze 3 books into a 3 week period and write about them. It felt like a distraction most of the time, and while my initial research did serve to help my novel factually, the rest just seemed excessive.
Pretty excited about it all in general. And I can't wait to hold in my hand the most expensive piece of paper I've ever bought...
