Incredibly depressing: one of my committee members now wants to delay my defense at least a week, because I didn't formally attach a segment of the document that he already read. This means that I probably won't be able to defend until, like September or something because of the members' various vacation schedule incompatibilities. Dangit, why does he have to be the one holdout? After I worked so incredibly hard to get the whole damn thing done in time for them to have it two weeks in advance-- last week.
I guess ultimately it doesn't matter, (and in 15 billion years the sun will burn out, etc.) but I am really, really tired of being a fourth year doctoral student who doesn't even have a master's yet.
It's mainly the part where I was just about there, and then it was yanked away all of a sudden from an unexpected source.
