For the past month our life has been literally “on hold”. Why? Very simple. I’m finishing this thing called a Ph.D which has this other thing called a Dissertation. While the PhD programs demands commitment and time throughout your 4 or 5 years, nothing really compares to what it demands on the last stretch.
By the time you see the light at the end of the tunnel, you are soooooo ready to finish but you are also soooooo exhausted. In addition, in our case, Alan has been working on what will be by final experiment. And since it is a time sensitive thing we have literally been living cooked up in our home working, working, and working, to ensure it works and is ready in time.
So as it seems that all the programming and testing will end this week, and the experiment will be launched next week – we are really looking forward to “unholding” our life.
What does that mean you ask? Well simple things like going to the gym, going out to eat sometimes or at least to have a drink, going to the park, en fin just being able to LEAVE the house and go have a coffee while you walk on the beach. Seeing the sun, feeling the breeze in your face….being able to not feel stressed. So stressed that I can’t even find a picture to include in this post!
In this last stretch I ask for all of you to please keep us in your prayers so we can pull this off in time and with results. This will guarantee me finishing my degree before starting at my job – which is my goal.
So tonight when you go to sleep remember to tell the man upstairs to help us unhold our life. Even Nemo will be grateful!
