Crunch time

This is what the rest of my academic year looks like:

January - 1 paper
February - 1 paper + MA dissertation proposal + PhD dissertation proposal
March - 1 presentation + 2 papers + PhD funding applications
April, May - Study for exams in early June, which are comprehensive (3 exams, each one consisting of 3 essays in 3 hours)
Early June - Exams
Mid-late June - Preliminary/background research for MA dissertation
July, August - Archival research for and writing of MA dissertation
September 15 - Submit MA dissertation
Late September - Begin PhD programme!

Hopefully somewhere in there I can take a short vacation - maybe early July.

Freak-out session begins.......NOW!

  • JC - see why I told you it's not a good term to visit! I think I should hold off on visitors until next year. With the PhD my time is more flexible because it's predominantly seminars and independent work with my supervisor. I'll have drafts of chapters to submit but not these various papers and presentations and exams. Plus I'll be working on MY project - the stress level will be different! The upside is time is flying by.

  • To be honest I'm thinking of going back to VA! If I get accepted to UVA I will apply to KIA's scholarship program and see if I can go on their financial support!

    My brother wants me to go to Australia so he can go as well but I don't know about that cause no money means no education out of Kuwait which mean KU here I come! :oP

    As for Non Blogger He's a workaholic! I passed by the building he woks at and I see his car! I passed the building a few times in 2 hours after 5PM and his car was still parked in the same place! :oP Allah i3eena wisa3da! Call On Me Non Blogger! :oP
