20 days and counting

got feedback for 2 chapters, message out to author of an article i am using heavily and have not heard back...want to get the stuff out and done...july 19 is the deadline to get things to the grad school with minimal(?) changes can be done after that...but i wanna be *done*

i wanna quilt and knit...just learned about a cool method of knitting-in-the-round on straight needles...knitting a hat/purse has just seemed to ease up...can't wait to try it, but gotta finish the stupid dissertation first, but keeping going until december is sounding better...there *is* a class i want to take, but i don't know if i can afford (money and time) to do that, but have not heard about pitt cc and a possible job...time is running short and i need to figure something out. school would be an option and i could get more $ from the feds...delay the re-payment of the loans, etc...frustrating..sigh. it will work out as they will i just need to let things happen and keep typing/thinking about the damn paper.

peace. sigh.

boy, am i having fun! (NOT!!!). i find it hard to be motivated when i am getting no feedback from the two chapters i have re-submitted and i have no job prospects...sad but true. i am going to apply all over the stupid state, though i would prefer to stay around here...maybe something closer to VA or SC, but still nearer the coast than the mountains...we shall see. august is fast approaching and things are getting a bit scary in the job/$$ picture...i refuse to flip burgers, but who knows what may happen after all the kiddies go back to school in august/september...keeping my fingers crossed, but still applying to places...sigh
