They weren't wrong when they said dissertation writing will make you go insane. Spending hours at the computer tpying away, wondering is anything i'm saying making sense? I did anything I could to distract myself but there's nothing like a huge deadline creeping up on you.
Although I did enjoy parts of my dissertation I've realized writing just isn't for me. I'll be sticking to the drawing! And even though this is only the draft and I still have another 2 months to go, it is a relief to be handing this in. Theres nothing like the feeling of submitting a piece of work you have spent on months on and being extremely proud of it.
Then taking what seems to be the entire collection of resource back to library and thinking did I even use/need half these books? But you'll included them on your referencing anyway.
I've come to relaize while writing this dissertation that the 3rd year of my degree will soon be coming to an end, and this upsets me very much. I have loved every minute even through the breakdowns and tears I would happliy do it all again. But for now... let's enjoy those last months.
The sudden panic the night before your deadline that you haven't got enough work! Well I had, I just didn't realize. Packing up all my stuff ready to go the next morning and I though to my self when/how did I manage to produce all this work?! Our term was very short, 8 weeks of trying to pull a project a final collection of 15 samples together while writing a dissertation seemed impossible. But I did it! Yes, there were many sleepless night, tears and a lot of worrying but it finally came together
To be continued next year...
