I had a dream that I was falling down

I'm back from a long weekend in San Francisco!

Emi drove us down to San Francisco on Thursday for Wondercon and other adventures. We toured the city, went to a roller derby match, and got a tour of Pixar from Josh Cooley while we were there! It was pretty dang awesome. Bucket lists were shortened.

Now I'm back at school and, as you have heard for the last several weeks, back to work on the thesis. I was relieved to get confirmation last week that the paper length for creative theses is generally 20-30 pages (vs. 40-50 for academic theses), and to receive a sheet of paper with guidelines for the written portion of creative theses that was not available online (I do not know why; it was very, very helpful).
Today, I am trying to type out everything that I can, knowing what I know at this point. Basically, I am making my roughest rough draft. Once I have all of my own knowledge down on paper, I can see what is missing and what I should spend the next 2 weeks researching and filling in.

Unrelated: did anyone see Fringe last week?! EPIC!! And the 80s intro made me laugh out loud!!!

Where'd you score the guidelines? Their web-stuff is pretty vague, that's for sure!

I went in to ask Kris Kirkeby for help. She said that this form never made it onto the new site, which seems like kind of an important thing to make happen...but she printed out a copy for me. Want me to email it to you?

I finally remembered to check back on this post... Heh, it's a bit late, but I'd love a copy! Sort of a last-minute checklist!
