Adventures in Writing

Yesterday, my advisor finally returned to me the chapter of my thesis that I had given to him for review. It was covered in red. He likes to go through it with you and explain every mark, which is good for learning to become a better writer. The thing is that the chapter was around 30 pages, so he had a lot of comments to make. We ran over our allocated meeting time, and there was still more to discuss before he had to go on to his next meeting.

I was really tired all day, because I hadn't had enough sleep the night before, so it was a little hard to take all his criticism, but I did manage. I fixed up most of the stuff he criticized, and I'm going to finish it today and send the chapter back to him for another iteration.

Good job Becca on taking the criticism - it's SO HARD sometimes, especially on little sleep. We know that "math is hard" (as Barbie tells us -- "let's go shopping!") but I think "writing is hard" too. Keep up the good work, sweet pea.
