Mondays > Sundays, P<0.001

Two pieces of good news came this morning:

Piece number one, my manuscript was finally accepted for publication (!!!)

Piece number two, all the professors I asked to sit on my committee have agreed (!!!)


Thank you to Skorzy for the advice earlier! Now I just have to schedule a meeting (ha ha, oh man..)

I have to pull together some junk for my presentation tonight and scrape together a seminar for the 22nd. I'm bastardizing a previous powerpoint which I used for a subgroup of the department, and it was long enough ago that I'm pretty sure if I update it, nobody will be the wiser.

I shouldn't show it until it's been published online, but it's our latest article.

It's not a book or anything, No way could I get a book published. (I like limmericks, short stories, and dirty jokes more than novels anyway..)

Score!
First author I suppose. Good shot! Ah yes, I loved making powerpointensteins. The feel more fulfilling than most presentations.

Excellent news! Congrats!

You're welcome on the advice. Now.. in retrospect, getting them on your committee wasn't that bad, was it? Try getting them to commit to BE in a meeting TOGETHER at the SAME TIME. That's always been a challenge on my end.
