From 2:oo to 4:00 yesterday I presented and answered questions about my research. Of course, there were issues with some of the aspects of my work, but overall my committee of professors seemed pleased. I anticipate that I'll spend the next few weeks making changes and tying up loose ends. As soon as I'm finished, I plan to take some time off to ski and possibly take a short road trip. I'm not thinking about what happens after that.
