Ever felt like you are on the edge of a cliff, struggling not to fall. One bit of bad news just adds that extra weight which will make you drop- where as one bit of good news will make you right yourself and bound away to the local pub!
So today is kind of a big deal for me. Why? Well for those who don't know or haven't bothered reading the 'About Me' section, I am currently a few months away from finishing my PhD. In fact, March 22nd is the day I have to hand it in... or else I need to completely dis-enroll from the University and then re-enroll and hand it in at a later date(Second half of next year??)
So why is today big? By the end of next week- I need to tell the University which option I am choosing.
1) I will hand in by March
2) I will dis-enroll and therefore may hand in sometime next year!
I want the first one to happen. I am over my PhD and on March 22nd in the evening I am flying out to South Africa to go Great White Shark diving(kind of like a celebration). If the second option happens, it is really going to mess me up. March has been in my head a long time and then suddenly not to have structure and not knowing when I need to hand it in- Well I think it may really mess me up, especially with all the bad news I have received lately.
So why is today such a big deal? Last night I emailed my supervisor who over the last few weeks has been reading large chunks of my thesis(well I hope). She will email back in the next few hours(once again- I hope) and tell me which option she feels I need to choose. So, basically, she will tell me to submit or suffer up to another year of pain. To be happy, albeit nervous, or to be sad, albeit distressed as HELL!
So today I am super busy writing and taking my mind of it all.... I will run later! The question is whether I will be running happy or angry... Wish me luck!
