At the end of this month, I fly out to Berkeley, give a finishing talk, get my advisors to sign my thesis, spend a couple of days closing everything up, and then Iris and I fly to Deutschland. That is the plan. It is an ambitious one, in that only one chapter of the thesis is done, the second needs major revisions, the third my committee members have not yet commented on, and the fourth I am still struggling with analyzing my mountains of data. And two of my committee members, including my major professor, are doing fieldwork on other continents for most of August, meaning they won't be doing much editing and approving of thesis chapters.
But that is my plan, and I'm sticking to it, until I am forced to think of something more realistic.
