The first draft of my Master's report is complete. In my professor's e-mailbox. It's a beastly old thing at 32 pages long. (Fourteen of those pages were written in the last 48 hours. blech!)
I would like to thank a few special someones without whom this little miracle would not have been possible:
The inventors of the word processor, SALT, Noodlebib, EBSCOhost databases, GoogleScholar, and the Adobe Acrobat "Select" tool.
The people at Michigan State who wrote a 280-page book on all the differences between Mandarin and English, and also the people who scanned it and turned it into a PDF. Bless your souls!
My parents for making me take several typing/computer classes so that I can type really, really fast when necessary.
My husband for always being supportive of me and making sure I have food to eat and clean clothes to wear.
