Stages of writing a master’s thesis

  1. I have so many things to write about.
  2. I have nothing to write about.
  3. Okay maybe it comes down to these 2 topics.
  4. None of them works.
  5. Whatever I’ll just choose this one.
  6. I have no idea what to write yet why do I need to submit a proposal?!
  7. This is like a mini thesis.
  8. Okay proposal approved now I can play until next semester.
  9. It’s still a bit too early to start right?
  10. Okay I should at least start thinking about my thesis…
  11. Maybe later
  12. I promise I will start next month.
  13. Nah take it easy you still have 4 months to write everything. Piece of cake.
  14. WHAT THE?!!! Why is the deadline for first draft is 1 month earlier than I thought?!!!!
  15. Nothing is ever clear about this school.
  16. If I start next month I still can finish in time.
  17. THERE’S NO WAY I can make it to the first deadline.
  18. OKAY time to start.
  19. Hmm it’s actually not that bad.
  20. This is going well.
  21. I’m done with the easy parts now what’s next?
  22. Gosh analyzing data is so freaking difficult.
  23. I write almost half already so I should take a rest.
  24. If I write 1000 words per day then I’ll be done in half a month. Easy.
  25. Okay maybe I’ll write 500 today and 500 tomorrow.
  26. I hate this so much.
  27. I still hate this so much.
  28. I don’t know what to write!!!
