I am taking a short break away from my dissertation. I have a lot of thoughts whirring around in my mind and I want to give them a chance to settle into some sort of logical order.
Since Hook shut down for the summer, I have been maniacally busy constructing my portfolios for submission. The final print made a dent in my printer credit… 110 pages give or take. That was a lot of writing! The dissertation may be something like that too.
I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed. Three years ago I was working full-time, anticipating the excitement of a new adventure and now it is drawing to a close.
I will take all the lessons learned and apply them to my writing in the future. It will be a little daunting without the safety net of the tutors for guidance. I am so pleased that I look the opportunity to leave my safe life and experience university and all that it offers. The adventure has opened my mind, kept my outlook youthful and given me confidence to move on to another chapter in my life. So with this ending there is a new beginning.
I will just say finally, good luck to all the 2013-2016 journos and many thanks to all the tutors in particular Dr Hayes Mabweazara, our course tutor and my dissertaion supervisor.
See you all at the Falitzers.
