Thankfully, this is about submitting the thesis rather than giving up! After 39 months of work, 78,000 words and 357 pages of thesis I’ve submitted! As I’ve said before, I have worked harder than ever before for the last eight months, and it is a tremendous relief to finally be able to take a breath now.
I found completing the final stages of the document really very stressful, and the temptation to start a final round of proof reading the whole 357 pages AGAIN was strong. However, when I’d completed my to do list and printed the document on Tuesday I felt proud of it, rather than spotting hundreds of errors as I’d feared. I just hope my examiners agree…..! Anyway, I’m off for a lie down in a darkened room.
