Completing Your Thesis or Dissertation:
Pull Out Your Cape and Tights
I got the idea for this newsletter after listening to past Dissertation House participants describe how they were able to complete their dissertation. Most of them relayed almost heroic tales of what they had to go through in order to complete their degree. One told of sleeping in his office only two hours a day and living on freeze dried rations for sustenance. A female graduate remembered giving birth and having to get back on task only three weeks later, despite her desire to spend time bonding with her newborn. Yet another recalled being so anxious about her ongoing workload that she wasn’t ever able to get a full night’s rest.
When students in the Dissertation House heard these stories, many sat silently thinking, “I don’t think I can do that”. This newsletter is for all of you who have the same fear, or who are thinking you have to be “Superman” or “Superwoman” in order to finish your degree.
