Hard to believe

by Lilia Efimova on 17 February 2009

It’s dark and quiet – only clicking of the keyboard. My two favourite men are asleep and I’m typing. I can easily picture myself like that – in a few months – working on the finishing touches of my dissertation.

late at night, 3 July 2007

It took longer than I thought. But I’m there now, putting words together like threading beads into a necklace, typing when my favourite men are asleep, working on the finishing touches of my dissertation.

Hard to believe.

[I’d better go and work on it :)]

Great to hear I was not the only lunatic (from the latin for moon so I guess it’s appropriate) up in the middle of the night studying while family slept.

Keep it up Lilia. There is life on the other side :-)

I have spent the last few weeks of freedom washing dishes for my wife, cooking, playing games with the kids, teaching my son to sell lego parts on eBay, watching TV (and trying not to feel guilty for not reading something).

I look forward to hearing your results.

You’re about to switch from an identity of someone whose finishing to someone who IS! Enjoy that transition process….
