This is the last chance I will ever get at being a good student. Getting into that early-to-bed-early-to-wake-meakes-a-student-pretty-&-great routine, and sitting down with my darling thesis for eight hours a day. My deadline is January 31st. It feels so close! I can’t recommend moving, and a break-up in the very first month of thesis writing. It sure messed up my thesis writing process. But now, things are somewhat settled (getting there, still) and I can sit down on my own without crying. So now is the time to nail those 80 pages!
My mind is set on writing 20 pages a month the next four months + carrying out and transcribing interviews. So getting into that thesis mode is crucial. But… How to get there? Do you have any great study tips to share?
Going somewhere else than my dorm room is a must. So is some hot tea/coffee to bring along. Cake, on special days, is important too. And embrace the fact that some days will be utterly horrible and that is OK. Just do something. Update the bibliography for example. I have not yet spilled any tears over my thesis, but I’m sure that’s bound to happen one day.
That was a thesis update. I will of course let you know how I’m doing along the way. Maybe some of you, dear readers, are also in the blissful thesis heaven?
