....um, let's see. 73 credits down. 47 to go. FORTY-SEVEN????!!!! That's like....like.... THREE MORE YEARS. Dear lord. Now I almost wish I hadn't counted. But then again, in three years I'll be age [bleep] WITH the degree instead of age [bleep] WITHOUT it. Plus I will have had the experience of writing more nightmare-ish papers like this last one--I'll be able to pump out ten-pagers without even blinking! Always look at the bright side, right?
