On Friday I sent an e-mail to my adviser and my second reader to see if there was any news about my thesis. They've had it for almost a week and I was getting antsy.
My e-mail Friday afternoon:
"At the risk of being pushy, is there any news?
I'm sorry; I'm just so stressed and sitting on pins and needles waiting to hear what you have to say.
Let me know if you have any questions. Hope to hear from you soon. If not, have a terrific weekend."
Adviser's response Friday evening:
"No news yet."
Second reader's response today:
"I am ready to sign. Can we set up a time on Monday? I am meeting with someone at 9:30 and again at 10:30, and I'll probably be in my office until 11:30 (and again in the afternoon), so let me know what time you want to come by and I'll sign."
AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! No word from my adviser, though. So nothing is definite. However, some light is starting to shine through the end of the tunnel!!
