belated yay

I turned in my dissertation last week! I'll officially be a doctor on 9/1/2008. Woot! :)

Now on to writing the journal version...and then maybe my academic obligations will be fully discharged. I expect that this won't be quite as taxing, since it's mostly going to involve cutting stuff and refining it so that it flows smoothly.

In other news, I signed up for a pencil drawing & sketching class at my local tech school, so I'll be happily sketching away this fall! I've been self-taught up to this point, but it's long been a dream of mine to get some official training, maybe move on to learning how to use color (oooh!)

jcobleigh and I have started watching the first season of Stargate: Atlantis on DVD. It's fun watching the characters in their earlier years. First few eps are surprisingly good. The show doesn't reach the heights of the new Battlestar Galactica or Babylon 5, but it's roughly equivalent to the generic sci-fi fun, refreshingly non-soap-operatic, occasionally interesting thoughts of Stargate: SG-1, so I'm satisfied.

God (and life) is good.

Oh, and Wikipedia's good for catching up on history, too. In case it matters. Which it probably doesn't.
noooooo
nooooo

some shows i go online and read what happened
and don't mind
like especially history

say i'm watching bones reruns on tnt i'll go check what i missed online because i never know when they're showing it and will always miss it.

but something i want to watch in continuum...the most i might do is gear myself up to be lost and watch and one day catch up...it'll take another session with self to convince myself to read it
