a look into the distant future…

One day… no, really, one day… we will come to the end of our PhDs!

And after thinking millions of thoughts and writing thousands of words, there will still be one job left to do. The dedication and acknowledgements. I know, I know… this might read as some sort of cruel joke given how, for many of us, this is miles away (light years), but I thought I’d lead you to an article (click me) on the Sussex Doctoral School blog all about writing those very final words… After all, it’s a bit of a motivator to think about getting to that stage.

And, let’s be honest, it’s a distraction from the real task, and when has that ever been a bad thing?

  1. This is my current hell! bit by bit writing the Thesis and to be honest I have a constant internal dialogue about who I feel is or is not supporting me at the moment! (and yes, it can come down to having to do the dishes when I want to work and fuming about that!…lol)

    I think some people do go OTT on this but its a nice little ‘hit’ list to compile!
