hey doods,

guess what? i'm ABD. that stands for All But Dissertation. for you non-academicky folks out there, that is the academic life-stage equivalent of turning 18. no one's student anymore. a ph.d candidate. it means that my job is to research and write the best goddamn dissertation ever. it means that there is much less oversight from my committee now.

and i got lucky, cos i got some seriously good support for research and so i'm moving to guate in mid-june until may, at least.

yay! scary! yay!
