The whole thing is not yet done but... sharing this minor milestone is going to help prevent me from sending drafts all over the place out of control and getting ridiculous out-of-sync corrections back.

I finished the first draft of my last data chapter today. I also provisionally finished my General Discussion/Future Work wrap-up, and the introductory lit review is already done and just needs spruced up with an extra paragraph. Now it’s just down to corrections, writing abstracts, and formatting.

Guys, I think I actually have a PhD thesis.
