so close...and yet...
Now entering the home strait of PhD thesis....
about 10 weeks to go until the 1st draft is due.
It's at the point where I'm tinkering, re-writing bits, proof reading everything and sorting out the illustrations.
wordcount main body: 95,000.
so if I can keep it at around this wordcount I'll be fine (main body cannot exceed 100,000 words and they don't care about appendices)
It does mean that I practically live in my study and my social life has become non existent.
Can't wait for it to be over.
Sounds like I'm whining, and well...I am a bit. I'm very much looking forward to having a normal life and with any luck, some decently paid employment!
Been accepted on a 'conservation and restoration of ancient Greek ceramics' course for 2 weeks in Bulgaria in September. Followed by several weeks as a volunteer at the British Institute of Archaelogy at Ankara, Turkey.
Any other Archaeologists on the co-op working in or around Ankara in late September/early October?
