I finished my last experiment at 4:58, unable to sit down because of the jitters of trying to reach this last result inside the deadline. I did, and I submitted at 5:15pm, jumpy because I was afraid of being rejected.
I couldn't help but feel that this was a Hollywood ending -- the evaluation process was ticking across the screen as the seconds tick down.
I hate this kind of time pressure. Let this be a lesson for me: get the revisions done as soon as possible. You never know when you're going to find a bug. The last day is not a good day for this.
Now I only have one more project and I'm done for the quarter.
