I have just about completed chapters two and three, and I’m more than halfway done with chapter four. My goal is to have the draft finished by the end of the year, fully approved by my advisor.

I want to send it in to the rest of my committee in early Feb, make revisions, and defend in early April.

It’s a marathon and I’m tired, even though I take more breaks than I should.

It’s like eating the same flavor of ice cream every day for a year.
