And Now I Bite My Nails

Today I submitted my MA project for approval. My adviser has until May 11th to sign off on it. I don't have any reason to expect I will get denied, but still, I'm kind of on tenterhooks about it.

On the plus side, it's like an amazing weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I feel so relaxed and free!

1 How many trees (pages) did you use in your effort?  Or is the current process to submit everything electronically?  Anyway, congratulations on completing your project!

2 It came out as 42 pages in my preferred word processor, 44 pages in MS Word. I actually trimmed it down somewhat during a reorganization.

It was submitted electronically, but I find I am much better at spotting typos and misspellings if I can examine a hard copy, so I printed it out quite a few times during various revisions. I like to work at home, so I printed all of those copies on my own printer, but I still have hundreds of pages of free print queue unused at the university's computer center. Maybe I should find something to print there, it'd be a shame to waste those pages that I paid for! And whenever I start to think about conserving paper, my sister reminds me that the paperless office of the future would put her out of work.
