Officially finished with masters degree coursework as of today. Now, it's just a matter of writing a thesis (unless there's some awkward surprise).

Going to an Astros baseball game tonight. Expect blogging to pick up a little now that classes are finished. Unlike so many course assignments, the thesis is something interesting enough that it can likely be shared (in part and in parts, at least) on WILLisms.com.

In the meantime, consider this tip for bloggers who want an easy way to stay in shape:

For every post you make, do 15 push-ups. If you post rapid-fire snippets, cut that down to 5 per. It's amazing how effective just basic push-ups are.

Congratulations Will!...Good Luck on your thesis!

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at May 12, 2005 07:14 PM

CONGRATULATIONS!...I am soooooooooo proud of you! I am sure whatever you decide to do, you will do well!

Posted by: Linda at May 12, 2005 07:21 PM

How many push-ups?... You have got to be kidding! You must be in great shape, because you have quite a few posts...Wow! no wonder your waitresses say you look like the guy on THE OC... Woo Woo Woo Woo!

Just a thought about John Boltons nomination for the UN... Watching C-SPAN2 this morning. Sen. George Allen Republican from Virginia spoke and it was like a breath of fresh air. Next up Sen. Chris Dodd Dem. from Conneticut. The fresh air was just polluted by Chris Dodds foul breath spewing from the obvious partisanship words coming from his mouth!...Look at the people who represent the UN! John Bolton couldn't be any worse no matter what!

Good going Will!...Now for the hard part is what everyone says! I am sure all your faithful bloggers would agree that you have that genius thing going for you so it probably won't be too tuff on you!

OH. One other thing drop and give me FIVE!

Posted by: Walter at May 13, 2005 04:19 PM

HELLO. HELLO! Congratulations Will! Keep those post going, and keep doing those push ups or was it sit ups? Hello...

Let me guess? Your thesis will be on The Babe theory.

Posted by: Bill at May 14, 2005 07:19 AM

Now I know why you wanted a copy of my thesis to read.

Posted by: Ian Pittman at May 14, 2005 02:50 PM
