Finally, finally, finally, finally, finally, finally, finally, I have gotten the revamp of my first three chapters to my dissertation completed and turned in. What a HUGE relief! Literally, I feel like the weight of the world is off of my shoulders.
I was procrastinating, dreading the re-write because it's sooooooooooooooo time-consuming and since I haven't entered the research phase, boring.
Now the waiting... to see if it's right and what my advisor wants (it wasn't in large part last time, that's for sure).
And then I apply for approval to begin the actual research. I was excited when I got candidacy. I'll be more excited when I get the go-ahead to officially move forward.
Until then, I refuse to sit on pins and needles, and will instead just enjoy the release of that burden that was over my head (for now). :)
Guess I'll go relax for a bit, oh yeah, I LOVE that idea.
