So yes.
A week from tomorrow I hand in the first draft of my thesis to my tutor.
This means that I'm stuck in front of my computer for about 15 hours a day from now and until then.

Believe it or not, this is driving me slightly mad. Anyone who's writing about Samuel Beckett is bound to go mad at some point.

And so, I beg you - entertain me.
Anything you can come up with, anything. Links, jokes, pictures of cats that look funny, videos of kids falling down stairs, I literally do not care at this point.

But I'm begging you - help a sister out.
Please? Sad

Commiserations - my son just handed his dissertation in on Friday. I could feel the tension from 300 miles away.

Here's a cute doggie video:

Thanks guys.
That dog's a genius.

Also, ice1cube has just taught me the most efficient ways to work out. That site's pretty awesome in its randomness.

thesis? are we talking bachelors degree, masters
degree, phd, doctorate, nobel prize? it will dictate the level of sympathy "we" may or may not give you.

I just saw this post and had to comment, because I'm in the same "thesis hell" situation. (My university requires one for a BA degree.) You are not alone my friend. Confused

Johanna - you have my deepest sympathy.

And for the record, I'm fucking DONE!

I analysed the relationships in Waiting for Godot, and compared them to the relationships in Endgame. I love Beckett's work so much ♥
