Chapter 29: The Wall

In which our hero (that would be me) hits the wall and wonders why she is attempting to juggle a new job, a family, and grad school all at once. The protagonist is doing the best she can, but is not sure if that will be enough to get through the next 6+ months of writing this stupid thesis paper. Meanwhile the household is a mess, things are falling apart, and underwear supplies are running dangerously low, yet nobody seems to care. (Except me, because these underwear today? Totally falling down. Good thing I just had to sit in a training all day.)

The antagonist, my professor, who we will see in a later plot twist is actually on my side the whole time, keeps sending emails full of various instructions and revision notes. Her time frame? Somewhere between yesterday and right now.

So if I had time, I'd really write about all of this, but I don't. I'm going to have to go into hiding for the next month or so to get my work done. There just aren't enough hours in the day. If I'm not back by Thanksgiving, send out a search party. Wish me luck!

    I wish you all the luck in the world, but I'm confident that our hero will come out on top.

    I know you can do it, even if it means wearing granny panties every day.

    Remember the hero always comes through at the end.

    Exactly...the hero is the star! The hero doesn't die! The hero WINS!

    I'm here if you need anything. Good luck!

    Go, Susie, Go!

    And whenever you need a Cucina break, you just give me a holler. I hear the rosa sauce has been known to restore powers to heroes who need it.

    You can handle this, you will handle it and then we shall all rejoice. Seriously, remember to restore your powers (and salsa seems best for that, Jenn is correct) every so often.
