Dissertation

So I emailed my supervisor that I have for my dissertation next year with a more precise proposal. I really thought that my ideas were too big and that he was going to email me back saying “you’re rubbisshhh!!” and the wait for his reply killed me because I was so anxious.

BUT

His reply was actually really good. He said my ideas were strong but I shouldn’t be focusing on my segments yet and just focus on my ideas for now. So I’ve started writing a reply to him but I wanna make sure I can pack as much information in as possible.

I’m getting pretty motivated about this now. Yay. Thinking about buying some books to begin some mega research. I’m feeling excited, why am I feeling excited!? Ha ten thousand words is really scary…

Things to do this week are:

-Send email to my supervisor with more ideas.

-Look for some key books to begin research.

-Order books. Also check that the books that I am going  to order will be useful.

-Buy a big notepad and ring binder (I love stationary so this is the perfect excuse to spend some money.)

 

It feels weird that I’m going to be doing a lot of work over the summer when I am at home… Pfft kinda sucks. But needs to be done. I also need to read books for a module next year too but can’t get motivated to do that. Really don’t like reading books that I haven’t chosen myself.

Dissertation Meeting

So today was the day I had to travel back into uni from back in Blackpool to have my talk about dissertations next year.

I’ll start from the beginning of the day…

So I would have had to get the train from Blackpool to Ormskirk because I don’t have a car :'( and that would have probably have taken me about two hours at the least. With travelling to the train station, waiting for the train, then going to Preston, then waiting at the station in Preston, then getting on the train to Ormskirk and then walking to uni. That is just a horrible and tiring journey which also costs me money that I do not have.

So, because my boyfriend is just the best he said that he would drive me in which should take an hour!

Okay so he picks me up at quarter to ten (the meeting is at eleven) so that we can get there in good time. BUT we get stuck in the worst traffic I’ve seen in ages in Preston… I was panicking a bit actually, it got to half past ten before we got out of the traffic. So I was there thinking I am going to be late for this really important meeting!

Anyway. we got into Ormskirk at five to eleven. So the boyfriend dropped me off at the entrance and I pretty much ran into uni. I got there in time which I was shocked about.

The meeting:
Okay, the meeting was really helpful Andrea was talking us through aspects of what we had to do and how we were going to do it etc. And we got given the handbook to look over. We were also assigned our supervisors for next year. Those are the tutors who are going to help us get through the dissertation. I’ve got Peter. I’ve only had him for my horror lectures this year and no seminars. He seems really nice and he is funny, which I love. But because I haven’t had him for any seminars or anything I’m a bit nervous because he doesn’t really know me, and I am really bad with meeting new people. But I’m going to have to just push through it.

Anyways the meeting was only half an hour… Which kind of annoyed me because it took me over an hour to get there and I kinda feel as if the information we were given was all in the handbook anyway and we could have just been told to download the handbook offline etc. So it is a bit annoying. But it got me out and about for a bit of the day.

Now is where it gets serious though. Really need to start research for my dissertation etc. I’m scared about it I really am. But hopefully it’ll be good.
