I literally felt like I was going to be sick when I walked to pick my dissertation proposal up. I didn’t do as well as I wanted in one of the other pieces for the module and so I knew how important this one was. When I was passed it I could not even take it in. I think it took a few hours, days.
I want to say I worked really hard for it, and I guess I did. But mostly it was enjoyable. I enjoyed writing it. I enjoyed researching it. It wasn’t really like work. Not only have I done well in it, but I am actually proud of it. Everyone thinks I’m crazy (but we all knew that any way), because I am looking forward to getting started on my dissertation. Every time someone asks me if I have any plans for the summer, I respond with “my dissertation”. I’ve bought a moleskine to jot things down in if I come across relevant things or have any thoughts. I feel like I’ve been waiting to do this for a long time.
Can I go into research please?
