Right. That’s it. 60,000 words later, the dissertation is complete.
I may go mad if I have to proof-read it again, but thankfully I’ve had help in that department. Lots of typos and minor errors caught. All formatting sorted and various appendices organised.
It’s time to get it printed so I can offload it at the University next week.
Relieved isn’t the word. This has been on my mind in one way or another for over four years now. Countless weekends and evening of thinking, analysis and writing (and not a little moaning about it all on Twitter) but now I have something to show for it.
All things going to plan, I’ll be defending it at a viva exam some time in November. Between now and then, some well-earned downtime. A weekend in Dublin, another in Mallorca and a few good meals will put me back on track.
