Hiya Swetch, sorry it's been a while, been in a new job where i can't access non-work mail. How's it all going? Did you get your ch 9 submitted ok? I got my thesis in on 30th, after about a week of no sleep and last minute corrections! Bit of a relief but am now getting scared about the viva! Hope all's still going well for yo :)
Hiya Swetch, was just about to post in here! Yeah I have a really short amount of time to do a lot of corrections but luckily they're not major, mainly rephrasing etc, adding in a few bits here and there. Can't wAIT to submit! Just the last stretch now and a lot of burning the midnight oil for the next 2 weeks!
Well done with your chapter 9 and chapter 10, that's massive progress. How many are left altogether? Keep at it! :)
Pineapple, I am in a similar situation, my friend just passed with NO corrections - amazing and seemingly unheard of these days. She's also just got a great job too, and I'm so happy for her but also a teensy bit jealous!!
I have just got my corrections back today and submit 30th, so I now have tons to do in the next 2 weeks - not to mention the printing and binding part, which takes the best part of a week I've been told, eek! Stick at it pineapple, we'll all get there sooner or later! :-)
Hi everyone, just popping in to say hi and see how you're all doing at the moment - sounds like everyone's doing pretty well, and Ady, I'm glad you're feeling a bit more positive now. I'm getting my draft back (with final comments from sups) this Thursday, with the hard submission deadline of 30th - I'm really hoping the corrections aren't too huge as I only have 2 weeks to get it corrected, bound and submitted, eek! They've had mine since July too, I didn't realise it'd take this long to do the final draft marking. Feeling very nervous about reading their comments. :$
I know how that feels - it's really hard being told that something you've spent hours or days creating has to be deleted - time is too precious! Don't think of it as deleted though, think of it as a reference point, somthing that's helped to inform what you're writing now. You've learned from it and it will have become a starting point for what you'll go on to write into your final draft even if you haven't used it as actual written text.
I haven't had my draft back -argh! It has to be in in 3 weeks! I've had a bit of a break but am now trying to get on with the bits I am pretty sure need correcting, and hope that the sups' corrections aren't too substantial when they finally arrive.
That's brilliant, only a few weeks of hard slog left for you then, well done! You sound much more positive than a month or so ago. I hope to get fedback next week as I really need to be getting on with my corrections for a 30th Sept submission deadline. Fingers crossed ther won't be too many major amendments!
Hi Swetch,sorry it's been a while, I got back from Austria last week and it's been really crazy busy since. How is the thesis going? I got my full draft in but now awaiting corrections before submission. Hope you're doing ok, keep me posted on your progress :)
Excellent news, well done. Sounds like it's all coming together and that you're more confident and poitive about it now, which is great. It's amazing what a positive perspective on things can do for your confidence - when I have 'good' days i feel great about it and sometimes I'm really pessimistic! Often depends how much sleep i've had though!
Today's my last day of proofing, adding examples and generally tidying it up before submission of the draft tomorrow morning. After that I'm away in Austria at a long confrence/arts event-type thing until 11th August which will be a nice break. Are you planning a break this summer after you've handed in a couple of chapters?
Oh no I'm sorry, I completely missed that thread!
Sounds like you're doing so well, well done! I can tell your on a proper mission with it now! I'm sure you'll get there by the targets you've set yourself.
The pressure's really on for me, I have to hand in my full draft this Thursday so have taken the week off work. So far I've done all of my corrections and finished my intro chapter and started my conclusion. I am working on the latter today and want it finshed, so that tomorrow and Thurs I can proof read everything and add in the few bits of extra research that still need puting in - just examples etc that i'd missed. It's going to be hard but I have to have it in by then as I go away for 2 weeks on Friday. Fingers crossed.
