06/09 Dissertation Progress: my entire being HURTS

  • It feels like I’m drowning and yet I know that if I bob up and down really hard for a little while longer, I’ll make it to shore and I’ll survive, etc etc.
  • Fits of panic, a few meltdowns.
  • Having a few problems with my word limit. I was fine, but suddenly I’m not, but it might be OK, I don’t know.
  • I walked into an AUTOMATIC SLIDING DOOR yesterday. How is that even possible?
  • I don’t have time/words to include some extra stuff, which is a shame.
  • Lots of thoughts about fonts, and margins, and other stuff.
  • Still need to edit half the dissertation’s footnotes.
  • My sanity is being held in place by my boyfriend (who brings me his massive headphones so I can listen to soothing music while working at the postgraduate study room) and my most amazing friend in Malta who is Chief Proofreader, Chief Encourager, and Chief Best Person. <3
  • Since the word count doesn’t really matter any more for the purposes of this blog, let’s have a BANANA CHIP COUNT.
  • Current amount of banana chips eaten today: approximately 273 banana chips!
  • I am turning into a banana chip.

    Banana chips are good for you! They are full of potassium and so on. And we all love you and the dissertation shall be perfected and there will be NO WORRIES.
