I’ve barely been outside my apartment this past week, except for regular visits to Java House around the corner for caffeine intake. Oh, and a much needed break with for a very nice dinner yesterday at Kramerbooks with Mr. M, during which I had my first glass of wine in three weeks. Needless to say, I ordered a second glass! With eleven days to my dissertation deadline, I’m unlikely to get out again in a while. I have, however, started to dream about post-dissertation life. This paper has been with me for so long – I started gathering literature for it back in June – and with all the work lately, I haven’t had a single day off since I went to Montenegro in mid September. So what am I dreaming of? Sleeping in, reading fiction, watching movies, taking long walks, and preparing for the holiday season!
