Chapter 29: The Wall
by, 10-07-2008 at 03:29 PM
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!
