THESIS DEFENSE MEETING: PASSED!

by Alex - Project Lady

I cannot believe that I passed! 

Made a nice presentation about my project plan for the next 2 semesters and I convinced the committee. I wasted 1 year of thesis writing with depression and sickness and have 1 year left. So in 1 year (2 semesters) I will start from zero and finish it!

I spoke openly and honestly why I could not do as I planned as I was sick & depressed. I apologized but I’ve made a B plan with a Jan 2016 graduation date. They loved my plan and encouraged me I will have my first meeting with my Thesis Advisor next week and until then I will be preparing the questionnaire for data collection. Fine by me, I am a stay home sick person, so let the THESIS PROJECT begin!

The most important thing was that, all the professors said that I was one of their best students ever and I should not worry because they believed in me both in getting better and finishing thesis! They believed in me more than I believed in myself! It was such an honor.

I am so happy and relieved!

As a treat to myself, I will eat my poached pumpkin dessert and watching Gandhi (1982) from my IMDB 250 watchlist.

Love,

Alex

    The Crazy Nigeria’s link sent me here. I admire the vulnerability I sensed in the statement, “I spoke openly and honestly why I could not do as I planned as I was sick & depressed.” Sometimes things don’t go as we planned, being honest and having a sincere apology can help.

    I wish you all the best for the future.

    🙂 I loved your post
    Actually, I have a really bad toothache now and I cannot use antibiotics 🙂
    I will go to the dentist tomorrow and until then I have to make a self-hypnosis for pain relief. I cannot use antibiotics because of leaky gut and the candida overgrowth in my intestines 🙂

    Gandhi distracted me from the ache for a while 🙂

    I am so happy about the thesis I cannot even whine about my tooth 🙂

    That thesis thing is really effective on me, this time, positive 🙂

    Thank you so much for making me a part of your first digest of 2015 🙂

    Yea, about that dessert, I kinda ate it 🙂 I can always make more 🙂

    Love,
    Alex
