There it is! The fruit of hard labour, the harvest of what has been sown 5 years ago: the draft of my PhD-thesis!
It is out of my hands now, while the jury is bowing their wise heads over it. But oh does it feel nice! To see these thoughts on paper, all neatly written down; the best thoughts of me and so many of my fine colleagues, on my favourite topic in the world.
Now on to the next steps: the bullet list for my PhD is finally getting alarmingly much shorter than it ever was. Pre-defense, re-writing, finalizing and defending, that is all there is left. But do not panic, the bullet list for the future is already put in position, I am unlikely to end up bored!
