Should I be thinking about my dissertation?

Scroll down to content

As someone who dwells on the past, worries about the future and ignores the present, it’s no surprise that I’m already thinking about my dissertation.

The fact I have to write a mammoth sized piece of work on a topic of my choice that will contribute greatly to my final classification is enough to send any carbon copy Amy Santiago of Brooklyn Nine Nine into a cold sweat.

Friends that have been in the same academic year as me since we first knew each-other have now graduated, and therefore have already written their dissertations. I’ve been listening to them talk about their topics and received snapchats of the live writing process while I was swanning around Spain, and now it’s my turn. Is it too early to think about it though?

I feel like I’m embracing my inner Hermione. After having a eureka moment a few days ago, I’ve started researching a topic that I haven’t even had approved. My lecturers are probably enjoying their summer holidays so 1am emails are off the cards, so am I peaking too soon?

Other summer events: played some more video-games (fun), went to a gin festival (tasty), discovered a pintxo bar in my hometown (nostalgic) and caught a LOT of busses (less fun).

PS: If you’ve done your dissertation or know at least 3 dissertation facts, advice is always welcome ❤
