Here’s what happened when I finished my PhD thesis

Andrew Gelman Sep 7 '13


May 11, midday: Made a list of all the things I needed to do to finish the thesis.

May 12, midday: Tear up the list, decide to finish it with what I had at hand.

May 13, 7am: Thesis finished.

It was very satisfying.

P.S. This is the sort of post you won’t be seeing anymore, once we move to the Washington Post.
