My first ever First-Author (well, co-first author) paper has just been submitted. It's just a short little technical thing with the finally-finished data set Chtulhu, a bit about hypothesis Duh and the preliminary framework for hypothesis yet-unnamed. But! It is mine (and a few other peoples') and it is done and it is sent out into the aether. In my field, that's not bad for where I am in my degree.
Wish me luck!
