I finally as of last night sent my draft of my dissertation to my advisor. It’s in his hands now and I only hope that revisions aren’t going to be too painful. I’m set to defend at the beginning of May and just praying (well, not religious, but you know the equivalent) that things go okay. Thanks for all the support you guys have shown. My dissertation has cause such tension with Boyfriend or Best Friend because he felt like I was neglecting him but didn’t want to intrude because he knew I had to get it done. I just hope now that its one more step closer to being done things can resume back to normal!!!

Yay! Congrats! This is a HUGE accomplishment. The defense is easy… just remember, no one in the room knows as much about your topic as you do! You are the EXPERT! I finished my PhD in 2009 (right when Fiance started dating) and Fiance sent his dissertation to his advisor last week for his defense in May, so I totally know how you feel! You guys should take a mini-vacation once the defense is done to celebrate!
