Thesis or Fecis

It all comes down to this…

6 – 5:33am, Thesis is done

with 4 comments

I finished my thesis. I don’t feel the glow of accomplishment. I don’t feel the pressure release from completion. I just feel mind fucked.

You can download the the whole thesis if you’re interested but I will warn you that it tops out at 248 pages. If you’re a fan of infoporn, check out the figures. The text is perfect if you are having problems sleeping; you won’t after reading a couple of pages of this document.

My thesis defense will be on Wednesday, April 16th at 1:30pm. This event is free and open to the public. Yes, you’re all invited in case you were waiting for that. I would love to share my research with you. Yes, there is also the possibility of public humiliation.

Did you ever see that duck tales episode where Huey, Louie and Duey got ahold of that watch that would stop time? Every minute they had was like a second for the real world? I could use that watch right now cause I feel a Rip Van Winkle caliber nap bubbling up to the surface and tonight better be the LAST time I sleep in the Rice Library.

  4. Wow Matthew – you are frigging amazing. I can’t wait to read this beautiful thesistical tome you have created (uhm, at least the words I understand… ahem) and look forward to cheering you on next week. I’ll be the drunk one in the back making up words like thesistical and trying to impress the Rice people.
