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).
