my dissertation now has a due date. A DUE DATE. as though it were an impending child.
i happened upon this horrible fact when blithely filing my progress report for second term. up there by the start date in what had previously been a blank box, there is now this absolutely horrifying due date.
which, in all honestly, is doable.
but that doesn't mean i want to see it. and it doesn't mean that i'm prepared to know it exists.
