MA DISSERTATION  
FINISHED!!!!!!

I may have to kidnap this chair from the college library - it has become shaped to my bum, so much so, it's almost a part of me. I shall miss it.

I shan't miss carrying all those books. I just dropped off 8 hardbacked books of varying sizes that I've been carrying around with me for weeks. I just have to get rid of the other 4 and put away the paperwork in a meaningful manner and then - I'm FREEEEEEEEEE!

I can actually socialise madly without worrying about it, instead of socialising madly and feeling intense guilt. Oh, Zombiecon - why aren't you next weekend?

julia_winoljjulia_winolj on September 17th, 2008 12:18 am (UTC)
Sounds like a plan, but I was intending to go to Doug for the weekend... will have to get back to you.

Now you can come and see us!
julia_winoljjulia_winolj on September 17th, 2008 12:19 am (UTC)
That sounds like a nice idea. We probably need to do a co-ordination of diaries.
Mel: Magic Momentwhotheheckami on September 17th, 2008 06:12 am (UTC)
I shall co-ordinate mine and let you know when we're in residence ;@)

My mother says "now you're free, when are you coming to see me?"

Sounds like there's a queue.
julia_winoljjulia_winolj on September 17th, 2008 12:20 am (UTC)
Can I have a snooze first to recoup some of my energy?
Gah! Why am I still typing stuff - it's gone one am and I should be in bed.
egyptophileegyptophile on September 16th, 2008 08:26 pm (UTC)
Well done.

Congrats!
(Stealing from the library, please NOOOOOOO! )

Well, they started it! I tried to renew my books on Monday, and the system told me my Library Registration had expired. I had 8 books that I wasn't giving back till Tuesday after I finished and submitted the dissertation, so that would mean fines for 8 books. I whined on email to various people and was saved by Linda Cotton the saintly course administrator - apparently there was some sort of human error, and someone had decided that the 15th was the day the course ended even though the hand-in date for the last piece of work was the 16th. I feel they owe me the chair for anguish and angst caused to me from feeling that the Library (my one true home) had rejected me - waaaaah! Really threw me off my stride. Oooh! Can I sue them if I fail my MA....?

Thanks - me too. They only differentiate between a fail, an MA and a Distinction. In theory, I should pass easily, but it would be really wonderful to get a Distinction - it would look a lot better on my PhD funding applications!

And you would start on the PhD . . next month???

Congratulations on a good accomplishment!
julia_winoljjulia_winolj on September 17th, 2008 11:27 am (UTC)
Gaaah! No way. I need a break from all this hard - urm - well guilt I kept feeling whenever I goofed off and socialised instead of working. Taking a minimum 6 month break to get my head round what I want to do a PhD on, and do a bit of life laundry.
A monstrous ramblingbibliofile on September 17th, 2008 11:20 pm (UTC)
Hee. Yay for taking breaks.

I know someone who wants to go to grad school but laments that they won't let you apply with an Undecided concentration. Those decisions can be tough.

julia_winoljjulia_winolj on September 17th, 2008 11:28 am (UTC)
