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.


you have your Next Big Transition first and then we'll talk
and don't tell me to have mine
mine would probably be that hypothetical thing
Of course I won't tell you to have yours. Not something to be urged into, even jokingly. :)

The sleep-deprived thing is hearsay: I've heard that it really does look "easier" about 7-8 months in, when maybe the colic has resolved itself and a bit of a regular schedule and adjustment has taken place. But must be on guard: the adjustment is to having less sleep, and everyone knows that that impairs judgment.

Although, if you are going to have multiple transitions, you might as well pack them all in together, to get through the total maintenance time faster.
so it'd be like *one* transition, hmm?

what if your judgement is impaired anywayz
