It's been a busy week, so here's what happened:

-I wrote my final, major comprehensive exam (18th century). I thought I did well but was nevertheless nervous about the results. Turns out I did very well on the written and destroyed the oral, so needless to say, I was pleased as punch about that. Now I'm officially ABD (All But Dissertation). I still need to keep reminding myself that I don't have any pressing reading, etc. Anyone who has done comps (at least in an English department) knows how brutal the process is.

-I finally moved into my new place. Call me picky, but I'm thrilled that I'm out of cracktown. My new place is also ten times better in every conceiveable way: it's bigger, quieter, nicer, etc, etc. It really would take me about 200 pages to explain everything.

I'm probably going to go into caveman mode for the next week to reboot my system.
