I have until June 8th to do a pull-up. Exactly 4 months from today. I am starting to worry I am not going to make it.
(Wow, that's scary for a number of reasons -- I can't believe I am graduating in 4 months)
Matt claims I am making progress on my pull-up, and I suppose I can see that he's right. Yet, I still feel quite far from actually being able to do one. Strangely, the progression of my pull-up has been exactly the opposite of the progression of my dissertation. When I entered graduate school, writing a thesis seemed completely unachievable to me. As time passed, I realized slowly that I could do it. And now, so near to the end, it seems like no problem at all. The pull-up, on the other hand, seemed possible from the start. Really, how hard could it possibly be? But the harder I tried, the more I realized how hard it is. So now, even though I am closer to doing it than I have ever been, I feel less confident than I ever have that I will achieve my goal... At least I have 4 more months!
