I have finally got into the mode that I need to be in for my dissertation. Up until last weekend I just didn’t care, I went in for a meeting on Friday with my dissertation supervisor to discuss how I was getting on.
No surprise that she was a little disappointed that I had little done so far but that doesn’t really bother me, I am not the only one that has not done too much.
But yesterday (Sunday) I finally began to take it seriously, I looked up a lot on the topic which I writing about, it is on cloud computing for home use, I am not sure if I mentioned it before.
Motivation is a thing that I struggle most with when doing any sort of college work, not just with this dissertation. But I know this dissertation is important and I need to get it out of the way.
I have another meeting this Friday, pretty sure it will be every Friday from now on, again this meeting will be to discuss my progress, this time I intend on having a fair chunk of my dissertation done, by that I mean at least a full chapter. It seems like it is feasible.
I am constantly thinking of a few new things I can add into my dissertation here and there, but I cant add them in just yet because I haven’t reached that point / chapter of the dissertation.
I have points written in a separate word document to my dissertation, these are for use later and only if I think they will fit.
As I continue with my dissertation I will no doubt begin to write a few blog posts about it, it will serve two purposes. The first is it will be a sort of journal or proof to myself that I am doing work and the second is that hopefully someone will find it interesting. A fellow classmate said that her supervisor suggested keeping a journal in blog style, which I think is a great idea!
