The countdown begins...

For the past month everyone has been asking me if I have been counting down the days to finishing grad school. “Can you smell it?” and “Can you see the light at the end of the tunnel?”

Until now the answer has been no.

Today, I think I’ll start. I’m down to my final projects in each class. While both will take a lot of time to complete, just having two assignments is something I can get my brain around.

Thus 17 days and counting…

That reminds me of the 1980s Japanese anime Star Blazers. The Star Blazers were trying to save the earth from radioactive destruction (long story) and they had only one year to make it across the galaxy and back with the antidote. At the end of each episode, the announcer would say. “There are only [xxx] days left… will they make it?”

Stay tuned…
