I'm leaving a little post for all future thesis printers, so when you are working on your thesis, and if you feel the way I am about to describe, you won't feel alone. Okay, you ready?

Here is the truth: when you finally start printing your thesis, you are already over it. You don't like it. You want to throw it out the window. You want to work on something new and exciting. But instead, you have to print it, for days.

But! it'll be okay. In the end, you will regain your love for it, and feel happy and proud.

Down in the mill--the cold is coming through the slats in the door--beating bluejeans for papermaking tomorrow. It has been awhile since I've been down here alone. It's very nice. Now to start hitting the fiber strongly!
