Major Dissertation Intro & Chapter 1 Overhaul - Day 3

Image result for short nights

Again, up at 6:30, weather abysmal, so no beautiful sunrises today, just thick moody rain.  Back to the drawing board, left it at the halfway mark yesterday, hoping for bursts of inspiration today.  Go me.

I have just noticed on our students' forum that there are many of us all tapping the way at the same thing.  I am aghast however, that some have left it til today to cram doing the LOT! Are you crazy?  I know students brag about their abilities, but seriously? One has only done her transferrable skills and nothing else, another who says that they are 1,500 words in and that makes them pretty much done on that piece, even though they have a f***ton of other work to do on the portfolio.  Either they are supremely gifted/Don't care, or like me, in the death throes and are bricking it.  It's a bit late in the degree to drag yer ass, though.

Well, they aren't all plodders like me.  Some are super quick off the mark and relish last minute challenges that bring the best out in them.  Plus, most don't have 6am starts and live 2 hours away from the Uni.  In anycase, regardless of who you are, good luck.  We all need it :-)
