I turned in my Institutional Review Board application and mailed off the grant application today. Hooray! For the first time in quite a while, I feel like there isn't any immediate deadline hanging over my head. Before these deadlines, it was comps - before that, fall class papers - before that, another grant and AERA conference presentations.

I'm sure soon enough I'll feel pressure again. I need to defend my proposal in a month or two, write term papers for this semester, and submit conference presentations to ASHE. And without specific deadlines, I have to revise some papers for journal submissions. For the moment, though, I'll enjoy the feeling.

I'm even taking off tomorrow to go caving. Nothing academic, all day long!
