So yes, my last update was the 19th of December and ideally right now I would be telling you that I am really far through my dissertation because I spend all Christmas researching and writing, BUT I said I would be honest with this process; so what have I actually done?
Today I am meant to hand in my Methodology ‘the time plan of when I plan on conducting all my interviews etc’ and have already completed my rational, literature review & third chapter.
- Well, I have only just written my rational and I am still missing a lot of references.
- I have no concrete idea of when I shall be doing all my interviews or who with.
- & no I am still no where near finishing my literature review.
The thing is Christmas break was so relaxing and I was with family and friends, don’t get me wrong dissertation did cross my mind but then other things were more interesting and fun, & now I am in a very similar position to where I was back on the 19th of December.
But things need to change, the only person who I am screwing over is myself and I don’t want that! So after I finish my other assignment this weekend I am setting a full on time plan that I plan to stick by so that I am no longer trailing behind at the end of the group!
You can catch up on my Dissertation process so far & if anyone has any advice or wants to share their story then please let me know in the comments or via twitter.
