With just under two weeks left before I have to hand in my dissertation, I am freaking out more than… something that usually freaks out. Unfortunately I have no insightful words of comfort, wisdom or advice for times like these because it feels as though my brain has been turned upside-down by stress and panic. I suppose the best advice I could possibly give for those writing a dissertation is painfully obvious and self-explanatory. Don’t leave it to the last minute to write half of it!
My three week easter break was full of relaxation and exercise, coupled with the occasional bit of university work… but if i’m being honest there was some serious procrastination going on. It is the reason why I’m currently camped out in the library in a battle to finish off my dissertation with the limited amount of time available to me. Being at home was nice, but I found it impossible to work amongst a variety of distractions and not having the comfortable yet resourceful working environment of the library.
Unfortunately my posts have not been particularly regular or very interesting as of late, but I’m sure you can understand the reason for this. Fear not though however as my next post will focus on the fantastic work of the late great British director Alan Clarke. In the meantime, I will be pulling my hair out in front of my laptop for the next few days.
