My dissertation is due on Monday--my 15,000 word dissertation and the 2,500 word essay that accompanies it. Luckily I have the creative inspiration of a piano driven jazz band echoing in my ears and a beautiful birthday card my friend made me sitting at my workstation. Thanks to them, I think I'm going to make it.
Check out the band:
The Neil Cowley Trio
It'll do your ears good. (And they're BRILLIANT live, if you ever get a chance to hear them.)
