... because my dissertation has 94,612 of them. In Times, that's 401 pages. The obsessive in me really really REALLY wants that to be 400. And also wants it to have an even 100,000 words. Hm. Cut some lines and use shorter words? I do still need to give it one more editing pass before handing it over to my advisor, so I'm sure those numbers will change. But one thing won't change: I am done with the first draft of my dissertation. In the end, after frantic typing and umpteen graphs, I think it's not half bad.
