Caolionn O'Connell over at Quantum Diaries for her first blog post mentions the hellish topic of thesis writing. She mentions the sensitive topic of the "how long/much do you have left?" question. I've learnt the hard way that this question is really hard to answer. I feel really guilty now about asking some of my friends this question (a lot) in the past. If any of you are out there reading this, I'm sorry!!!
