On Thursday I posted my last assignment, in the Career Development unit. It arrived on Friday and I was notified by e-mail. Hurray!
That means I am half-way through the course, as long as my marks are good, that is. Then, in July, the next two subjects will start. It will be another six months to which I look forward happily. I think I will have to start preparing right away, though, as the reading load is quite high.
In the next two weeks I want to set aside one week for working on my thesis. I’m sure that a dedicated week of effort will finalise it, now that I have been working on the discussion chapter. The prospect of finishing and then working on conference papers is really motivating. I have the abstracts for three papers and have been thinking of them as I work on the main thesis, but not writing them up yet.
There is the prospect of a short teaching contract coming up in two weeks’ time, as well. I hope to find out soon if I make the interview stage for next week. In any case, I will be immersed in writing my thesis and having paid employment is a great incentive to finish it soon.
