Adventures with Dr. Lady Cutie Troublemaker

Life is in flux BIG TIME these days. I want to keep in touch with all of my peeps. The Internet is this beautiful thing. I can move to a brand new city and still stay in easy, near-daily contact with the people I love. When I feel connected to the people in my life that matter, I am unstoppable!

Complete Submission

By Abby at 9:53 am on Tuesday, July 26, 2005

I whipped that dissertation into Complete Submission. Oh yes, I did.


"Complete submission." Heh heh. 

OK, now check this out. Before they let you hit submit, you have to fill out a freakin’ survey! A SURVEY, I tell you. Unbelievable. I’m sure I wasn’t the only near-submitter to respond with slightly snarky comments.


Click on the picture above for the full-size version.

What follows is the page you get when you’re done submitting. What I can’t help but notice is the lack of can can dancers and confetti. Surely they can do better than this!


Silly Update: I got a message from the Graduate School saying that I needed to change "July 26, 2005" on the title page to "July 2005" and resubmit. These details, man. They are bordering on the ridiculous!

Life Accomplishment Alert

By Abby at 3:41 pm on Saturday, July 23, 2005

I just e-mailed a PDF of my completed dissertation (with all required revisions) to my chair. I’m particularly proud of my copyright page. $45? I won’t pay you no stinking $45 to copyright my work. I’m way more hip than that! Here’s the ladybugged version:

I sure hope he’s happy with all he sees so I can just submit it. Cross your fingers! 

Now for some sort of treat, then I have to get cracking on yet another psych report! Will the fun ever start?!

Graduation Party

By Abby at 8:35 pm on Tuesday, June 21, 2005

When I get to Boston, I’m going to have me a real graduation party. I will get cheesy decorations and everyone who comes has to get me a dumb graduation-themed gift. I’ll even pick up a cake with silly caps and gowns and fake diplomas on top. It’ll be a blast!
