In one week - next Thursday - I should be picking up my thesis from the printers and taking it over to mail off to the UK. I am almost done: almost because there is still some editing to do, some areas I am not satisfied with, a title page and final bibliography to pull together. Almost because until I mail it - it will never be done. Almost because no matter how close or how far away the deadline was - it will never be done. In fact I only now feel equipped to really begin. It's a familiar feeling - one that I have had every time a project (big or small) ends. I guess its a sign of being alive, being driven to learn, being ready for the next step.
