the paper is finished . . . finally

For the past several days, I've been bogged down trying to finish the Fatimid paper. I had hoped to complete it by Saturday, but that didn't happen. I didn't actually complete it until this afternoon. I don't know why it took me so long to get this paper off the ground. For at least three consecutive days, I would look intently at my computer screen struggling to compose meaningful sentences with no tangible direction and no meaningful result. Nada. But thereafter, I began to make progress slowly. I didn't get more than five hours of sleep the past two nights as I plugged long hours trying to finish the paper as soon as possible. The paper, thankfully, is finished now. However, I'm quite pooped at the moment, so although the evening is relatively young (for a student) I don't plan to study any more tonight. I need to take care of a few loose ends, which I neglected as I focused on completing this paper.

Good for you, Duane.

I'm proud of you, even though I had nothing to do with it.

To use your own words "against" you:

Thanks, Sarah. Yeah, I'm very relieved that the paper is over, but uh oh, there's still the thesis! Argghhh! I need to get cracking on that. I'm happy to see that you're truckin' ahead.
