My couch, covered in papers. A strange filing system, yes, but some of the papers overlapped different sections of the intro, so my piles did as well (ha).
But the good news is that a draft of chapter one is complete! Even better, I spent the time to learn how to use a LaTex graphic interface called Lyx, so it looks quite fetching, if I do say so myself. It feels great to have another thing done! One step closer to graduating.
