I finished the course work for my Masters in Business two months after my daughter was born, but I never finished my Thesis.
I have not been looking for a job, it did not really matter, but the longer I put it off the more stress I felt about it, the harder it seemed.
Finally, more then four years later, I am actively working on it.
I sent my first draft in, I was hoping it would come back and there would only be a few changes necessary, but no there are lots and lots of edits.
Honestly I wanted to cry, I just want to be done. Edits are good, but I was asked to make big changes to the beginning of the paper and it feels so daunting.
I am trying not to get derailed.
My goal was to have it done and finalized my December 16th, allowing me to apply for spring graduation. I am going to try and make that goal still. I work well with deadlines, so I need to keep that hard-and-fast date in mind.
I went running this morning so today when I go to the gym, I am not to going to work out, I am going to check my kids into the daycare and get two hours to work.
I should not be blogging right now I should be working on my thesis.
