School is going good so far. My dissertation is coming up which has me pretty scared. This is going to be a big undertaking and I just don't know if I am ready for it. I guess I really don't have a choice in the matter as I only have one more class to go before we begin.

I have to say I am pretty proud of myself right now, I am carrying a 3.70 GPA to date. The program has been hard but in about 8 months I will be done. I will have my PhD. I have been working toward this for about 6 years now. I am so ready for it to be done. Of course, then I have to pay back the student loans. I have been making small payments over the years though so I know that should help.

This course I am in right now is a bit rough. The instructor nit picks everything. I know it's just to make us better, but sometimes they can be pretty harsh. I love the feedback except when they come across as talking down to you. I want constructive criticism, something I can fix. I think I have always been that way. I want to know when I've done something wrong and I want to know what I need to do to fix it.

So, my next class is another research class and I am not looking forward to that one either. However, my classes are only 8 weeks so that really isn't too bad.

Have a great day!

    the key for a good dissertation is to start to write it right in the beginning!
    If you didn’t do that it’s going to be a litle bit hard but no panic it’s possible.

    I had a woman correcting my dissertation and I it was awfull. I would cry just thinking about what was she going to say about my work everytime I gave it to her for reviewing. In the end my dissertation was amazing and I learned so much how to write that I corrected many of my friends work afterward.

    Don’t forget that a dissertation should be like a book, should tell a story of what you did and be interesting to read.

    I wish you luck,
