I expect to achieve the heights of Grad School Greatness-being ABD (I used to think it was some fancy Latin phrase, but it does indeed stand for All But Dissertation). I’ll never take a class from someone else ever again, after more than 20 years of schooling. I might be teaching classes, but won’t have to show up on campus other than that.

Most importantly, thanks to one or more grants that I am quite confident of receiving, I’ll be able to return to France for a year of research and debauchery. Hell. Yes. I keep myself going in my hardest year of schooling yet reminding myself that I’ll be there this time next year.

What about you @Highbrow? What are you looking forward to in your work this coming year?

To bookish1. Lots of projects in mind, certainly. Looking ahead, and within 2 or 3 three years, I look forward to pass my Baccalaureate with flying colors. I have no academic difficulties. I’m pretty a star pupil in almost all subject areas except in Math(both say that I’m not too fond of that school subject, to be honest). I really like studies(=I personally fancy that I was born to conduct studies or to become a teacher) it does not repel me, quite the contrary.

I had the possibility of lung cancer thrown at me this year. It was benign, but all the tests before the biopsy pointed towards cancer. It was a scary time and it ruined my summer, but it also reminded me of what’s important in my life. I plan to enjoy every moment of 2013. I’m looking forward to it.

2013 is starting in a much more stable financial position than 2012 did. Also I will be getting my first round of trans surgery in 2013, which I’m nervous about but looking forward to.

I don’t have any plans. I never do. I always achieve them all!
