Dissertation Progress- Draft One is In!

by - Friday, March 16, 2012

Alright, don't let my excitement about my break fool you into thinking what I turned in was spot on, it wasn't. I am proud of certain parts of it, but the historiography is not even close to being right, so I will be right back to work on Monday. But that, the getting right back to work, is what actually gets a dissertation finished, which is, of course, the goal. Man, it is really really not good. Just a mess. I am pretty sure it has to both be broader and more succinct. Ah well, silly historiography.

Anyway, now I am playing this game in my head where I try to think of every negative thing that my adviser could say to me. I am trying to not drive myself crazy with it, but you have to be prepared, because when they rip into you, you don't want to fall even further into the pit of graduate student self-loathing. Blergy! Ah well, I at least wrote a full thing and it isn't too horrible.
