I now have a firm deadline for submitting my dissertation.
Written feedback from my supervisor on Thursday highlighted a handful of edits I need to make. I also need to change some formatting bits and pieces. Time-consuming, fiddly but nothing I can’t handle.
I’m almost there.
Predictably, arcane University rules have once again reared their ugly heads. So I need to take Tuesday afternoon off and spend it shuttling between two University campuses to get various things signed.
But then…that’s it until the viva exam, which will be some time in November.
Can’t wait to physically hand over the multiple bound copies (small forest of paper…but I don’t drive….don’t hate me) and move on. It will be a literal and metaphorical weight off. I may in fact be able to reclaim some of the precious work-life balance I’ve been writing about these past four years.
Watch this space.
