Apologies for being a day late, didn’t have access to a computer! Here is my Business update – My Dissertation is submitted!
A lot of student’s I know have been stressed, breaking down and pulling out their hair because of this deadline creeping up and the workload being a lot, but not me. The work load of the dissertation wasn’t so bad, got it done and finished, that was fine, I had made it through the dissertation without one breakdown! But do not be fooled, that was the easy bit done. All of my breakdowns saved themselves until the end.
So remember when I said all I had to do was get it checked over and submit my work? HA! Well thats when my life broke down. Here is a break down of everything that could have went wrong in one week:
Monday – Dissertation is complete ready to send off to be checked over but my professor isn’t in nor available on email. No problem, try again tomorrow.
Tuesday – Arrange a meeting with my professor to check everything over, she misses the meeting, cancels it and emails me at midnight apologising and says we will try again tomorrow for sure! Okay, no stress I will just make sure it gets sorted tomorrow!
Wednesday – She is late for the meeting again. Finally turns up and I load my dissertation up and she skims through it in 2 minutes saying “yep, mhmm, yes this looks fine.”
Woman. I know it may look fine but tell me if I have done it right or not! That’s your job!!
I email the work to her later asking her to check it properly and meet up tomorrow or Friday to get it sorted, but oh. Wait. The final two days before hand in on Monday she isn’t going to be in University! AAAAAAHHHH. But it’s okay, she is available on email.
Thursday – Emails her. No reply. Two hours later emails her again. No reply. Two hours later emails her again. No reply still. Two hours later emails her one final time. Still. No. Reply.
I hate my life. Starting to get stressed at this point and to make it all worse, I’ve just printed my 67 page dissertation out and the printer has managed to mess it up so it has to go in the bin.
Friday – Still no reply to my emails. I have fixed and printed my dissertation again BUT
the printer has officially broken and all of the ink was smudged. Please kill me. Finally get a reply to my emails. Thank goodness. But its just a reminded that the deadline is Monday and this email has gone to 6 other people. Seriously?! I return home and cry into my cat whilst stuffing my face with cake.
Saturday – Today is a new day. Today is going to go well. Checks email – no reply still. It’s okay, I can do this. FINALLY gets it printed and it looks awesome, gets it bound. Looks great. But it still hasn’t been checked over. Stuff it, Submits.
So there you have it, my printing couldn’t have gone worse and my professor assigned to hep me and check my work over hasn’t at all. I feel confident with my work but for all I know it could be a steaming pile of doggie do-do. Oh well, nothing I can do now. I just hope I get a decent grade regardless.
P.S – STILL NO F**KING REPLY!
The stress is over now and it’s time to relax and finish my little pieces of work off before being free to enjoy my summer, lets hope these things go a lot easier than my dissertation! Wish me luck!
