My Theory of Relativity

Einstein once said:

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.

Well, I have a new version:

When you are waiting for your boyfriend to come home for R&R, the months just creep by. When you are writing your thesis, and only have until your boyfriend is coming home on R&R, suddenly that time starts zipping by.

Yesterday I put in the application for my thesis. Next week I will get a letter making it all official, and then the clock starts ticking. Officially I have until the end of September, but I have to finish it by the end of August, if I want to make it into the winter semester exam session, which starts in November.

And every time I think how hard this all is, I just think how I would rather be writing my thesis and preparing for exams, than living for a year in huts in Afghanistan. Now, that is relativity.

Well, I'll keep my fingers crossed for luck for you, B. I'm sure you'll do fine once you get started working on it.
