It's the sound of my near-final draft printing off, ready to be taken to the Department Office this morning! Rather than stay up horribly late last night, and to make sure I slept, I got up this morning at 5:00 am. It turned out that I had very little to do this morning, which was also nice. There were still a few things I was stuck on with the third chapter, and then I woke up this morning and discovered that what my chapter needed was some rearranging, and having a section from another chapter pasted into it, and not more content. Yesterday, I went through the chapter and cut out a whole bunch of unnecessary stuff that Dr. B said was slowing down the chapter (and I agree). And now I'm happy with it. I don't know what Dr. B will say, but I'm happy.
Yes, I am planning on sleeping on the plane, and I bought earplugs to help.
Goodbye for now! Yay, airplanes! (I'm such a kid: some of the most exciting parts of this trip is all the airplane flying, and taking the Skytrain in Vancouver.)
