The Thesis of Epic Doom

'Gave myself a good start a few minutes ago. After prepending the first subsection of my thesis introduction to the previously typed-up theoretical subsection, which I'd stored on my computer, I double-spaced the whole lot and did a page count. The result? Seven pages. A startled oath or two followed, given that, in a different word-processor, the theoretical section alone had measured nearly fifteen pages. Seven pages would not indicate decent progress towards an eighty page paper. Seven pages would more likely indicate that I was completely and rather epically doomed.

After a moment of reflection, and as it turned out, I'd simply forgotten that the most recent version of the theory section was on my USB key. It was that key (after some searching about in my gym bag and momentarily thinking that I'd left it in Montreal), which I eventually found. The actual page count, after appending the missing sections, turned out to be a more reasonable eighteen pages. No epic doom as of yet.
