I am totally with you! I'm five and half years in, although I have spent about a year and a half of that being ill (although only suspended for 6 months).
When I look at it, yes ok, so I've spent my youth (from age 25 to 30), but I also know that I could've not done it any quicker. I needed that time to read, think, learn, reformulate. I don't think I could've started writing my thesis any sooner than I did. In fact, if I had started any earlier, I would probably have taken the whole thesis down the wrong direction!
Things happen when they are suppose to, and you can't fight it :)
Evening everyone, it's so great to see everyone getting work done.
I just had one goal for today, that was to debug my programme, and after 9 hours, I've done it! yay!
I'm so glad it's done, it's been bugging me for 2 weeks.
What is everyone up to tomorrow?
Batfink27 - it's actually been a relief! I was umming and erring about so many things, spending more time worrying about if I could write a thesis, etc. before. Now, I just got to get things done, no time to waste on unnecessary worrying. It's also very satisfying seeing work getting done so quickly now.
How did you get on with your paper?
I had a lazy day off, so only printed a very good thesis out and had a good read. The rest of the day was spent on gardening and going to local farmers' markets :D
Thank you for a warm welcome and stars and sprouts! ha ha.
Sneaks, it's very dedicated of you to be waiting around to pick up your hubby!
I didn't really have a document that I could call a thesis until errrr, this week! couple of weeks back, I got an email telling me that I only had 8 months to go (and I though I had like a year and a half!). Been rushing to build up a thesis since! I've been making a Frankenstein from the papers I've written... it looks awful, but I least I can tell my sup "wooooo I have x teen thousand words done already"... no editing has been done though!
Ev - it's always helpful to see how other's are doing what you are doing isn't it?
I am dying to get to a life style where a weekend actually counts as weekends!
Hi everyone, first time post so please bare with me.
I have 7.5 months left until I must submit my thesis, so have been spending a lot of time working... or procrastinating... not sure which! Come across this forum and thought I'd jump in, I'm going through my notes today and adding them to my thesis today... It's turning out to be a lot more boring and time consuming job than I thought it was going to be...:-s
Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!
