I'll echo everyone else here: you're a smartie, so don't beat yourself up!

I think everyone in academia has at least a moment (or two, or five, in my case) where you basically go "D'OH!!!" And then, you automatically question whether you're "cut out" for the degree. :/

(And I hope you've recovered from the flu! Happy thoughts to you!)

Dozens of times in my case. And yet, I just picked up my framed ph.d. certificate from the framers all shiny and, well, real!

Ah. Now i have a yardstick with which to measure reality. There is a direct proportion between reality and the shiny-framedness of one's PhD.

Hee. I just keep expecting an email from someone telling me there are more forms to fill out or they will come and take it back.

I'd love to hear more about your project if you ever get over around Macalester for coffee. I can't really make it to the U. much anymore as my non-work time is all taken up with the new baby and his mother.

I'm not much in St. Paul these days, car-less wonder that i am (though i used to live over there), but i'm sure coffee could be arranged. Any input into the burgeoning dissertation nightmare is more than welcome.

Pretty much any MWF we could meet at the Coffee News, the lefty coffee shop in St. Paul that everyone (including me) likes. Except the next two mondays when I'll be off on job interviews in NYC And Chicago respectively.

Feeling much better, thank you. Looks like everyone at the U has some bug or other. Two of the 8 of us in my History class were out with it today.
