Submission date in two days!


Hello all,

Sorry for not being around for a while. I have been keeping up with the interesting discussions now and again.

I am submitting my PhD in two days. I am not sure how I feel about this. For the last two years all I have been thinking is, "I can't wait until I hand in my PhD!". However, I now feel like I am going to be made redundant from my job in two days!

I have read through my chapter loads of times but keep thinking there is something I am missing and I find typos now and again...has anyone else experienced this? Is anyone ever completely happy before submitting?

Also, I though the PhD would have taken 3-4 years to complete (full time), but due to having to work and other things, I am now at 5 1/2 years and it makes me feel really guilty. I know people don't finish in 3 years, but my one has taken too long, right? I am sure there is no set time and this differs, but I can't help but feel bad about it. I am not letting it affect me and am plugging away and reading as much as I can, as difficult as it is, as I am in the 'not bothered' stage at the moment!

Anyway, just wanted to vent my thoughts. I hope you are all doing well.

Any replies are welcome.


All the best Jineo...remember, the best thesis is a finished thesis !


Thanks Charlie!
