The Reason I've been AWOL: Part II

Yesterday I posted The Reason I've been AWOL Part I. This is Part II. 

Some of you may already know from Facebook and other channels that I have some very exciting (and non writing related) news! If you haven't seen it already, check out the video my husband and I made:

It is the story of our lives since we met each other, as retold by our little shell actors (Austrocochlea porcata to be exact -- yes I'm a marine biology nerd!). The story opens where we met in California, up to Seattle (note the Space Needle, heehee), to our grad programs in Arizona and then across the ocean to Sydney, where we are about to embark on a new adventure!

Our Lives In Shell Video:

That's right, my husband and I are thrilled to announce that we are expecting our first child!
Due Date December 3rd, 2013. This past year has been a very difficult one for me healthwise, so we are excited, shocked, and completely over the moon about this!

I won't be posting much more about the little one here, but if you're interested, there will be regular updates over on my personal blog: "Taylors in Sydney"

The Reason I've been AWOL: Part I

It's true. It's been over a month since I last posted. Here's why:

This is a graphic created over at JostWorld that depicts the standard distribution of PhD dissertation lengths.

See that large black hole sucking up the universe on the 300-350 page range? Yeah, that's mine.

And I haven't even added the references or conclusion yet.

I'm getting closer with my edits now (though hopefully for my adviser's sake I can cut down the length by 25-250 pages). Anyhow, that is why I've been sadly neglecting this blog. I'm graduating this summer and all my energy is being channeled into my dissertation. But, the end is in sight!

Stay tuned tomorrow for The Reason I've been AWOL: Part II.
