The following things have happened to me in the past week:
– The professor in charge of reading over my application materials strongly suggested I publish something. Yes, I’ll remedy that in the next week!
– After having two professors, Sydney, and me read over my dissertation abstract I looked at it once more just before sending it off . . . only to realize that I’d misspelled a character’s name. As in, I spelled it correctly elsewhere in the paragraph and then misspelled it later in the same paragraph. You wouldn’t have had to read the book to catch that one. And we all missed it. Scary!
– The internet service I’m required to use to send off all of my materials insists on “converting” all of the pdfs I upload . . . and it messes up the format. So now, each time I submit a new pdf I have to sit there, combing over it one letter at a time, making sure there isn’t another bug in the system.
Grey hair before I’m thirty . . .
