Wow, last update was in March! And here it is mid-November! Pretty much nothing noteworthy has happened during that period, until very, very recently. I am currently putting the finishing touches on my first draft of my thesis! I was spurred into action by my sweetie who said he'd treat me to Disneyland if I finished my thesis before February. Well, ok then! Apparently I am very bribeable, because that was two days ago, and here I am, wrapping up the first draft. Nothing like a good reason to get motivated, eh?
