Sunday, December 4, 2011 email

So I finished my last Chapter and sent it to my chair with the previous 3 for editing completion. Except...that was 3 days ago. So here I am, compulsively checking my email every 15-20 minutes. Sooner I get the edits back, the sooner I can edit, then I can schedule a oral defense before the semester end in 2 weeks...

My solution? Send an email that addresses another issue, unrelated to my Chapter 4 in hopes that:

1) He will feel compelled to mention his review progress

2) He will finish the review faster

Let's see how that works out for me...

Is that a light I see?


In what is likely to be a "Hail Mary" of my academic career I finally finished Chapter 3...again. Someone didn't like the first version so I got emo about it through the summer then dusted myself off and wrote a better one! My chair finally loved it and green-lighted me for the last chapter. So all I have left is that plus some changes in tense on the previous chapters and a short paragraph on reflexivity and I am good to go! Ironically reflexivity is actually me writing this on my blog...about my dissertation. I digress. Wish me luck internet type people for I shall attack that chapter most vigorously!...As soon as I get off this blog...and onto my other laptop...

The end of a rough week

It has been a tough week for me...and I really hate being right in these types of cases.

I spent the greater part of the week scrambling to get my chapter 3 done, I even took off 2 days to do it, not sure how I am gonna pay my bills this month but I felt I would regret it if I didn't try.

I finished Friday and sent my total 113 pages to my chair for review, then he emailed me and asked for tables...

Today should be good but its not...

So I had my proposal meeting today and unconditionally passed. Which means I don't have to make a whole lot of changes and I am green lighted to go ahead with the rest of the dissertation. Great news right? Should be, but it instead I just feel bad. It's like one of those times you get good news but you feel like there is a huge "BUT..." following it.
