Earlier today I decided that my social project for, like, the next 2-3 months would be convincing as many people as I can that I'm a thesis student. To do so I'd interject frustrated plaints, typical of students working on a thesis, into everyday dialogue, e.g., "Oh man, I have to have my draft in to my sponsor by Thursday!", or e.g., "Yeah, I'm tired because I had to wake up early to meet with my thesis sponsor." Or even e.g., "Oh shit, my draft is due yesterday!"I might be muddling the thesis-idiom, so pardon me. But the point is I want to thesis and be done. The point is also I am activating repressed pretensions to capability. The point is I'm done.
