Well, there it is. I sent off Chapter 4 to my advisor just this moment. I guess it is an accomplishment, but since I did most of the work on it months ago, it feels rather anticlimactic. Less of a victory and more like one less chore on a very, very long list. And since I'm pretty terrified of him in general, just because of what he is, not because of who he is, I suppose it is a pretty significant accomplishment.

Suz's comment made me splutter ....
As for the defense .... if you can get a wee baby to poop on the potty, you can pass a defense.
I didn't know about your orals: I'm enraged on your behalf. It's total BS when academics behave like children in that way, and it's had a material and deleterious effect on your work. GRRRR. But fantastic news on getting the chapter sent away!

HA @ Suz.
Congrats on getting chapter in and trying to overcome your fear. Sounds like your former advisor was a real ass.
