Nobody said writing a dissertation would be easy, but nobody said it would be this hard.

1. Regretting not starting sooner, no matter how soon you started.

2. And discovering that creating your own title actually wasn’t what you wanted after all.

Suddenly a set of topics to choose from sounds like heaven.

3. Having no idea where to start with your own research.

At all.

4. And realising that the library doesn’t even have most of the books that sound remotely relevant.

5. Starting to feel like you’re suffering from sun deprivation.

Y’know, if you weren’t already.

6. And feeling your caffeine addiction worsen day by day.

You need something just to get started… then some more to continue…

7. Accidentally and subconsciously making your way through a lot of biscuits and cake.

Who has time for a proper meal anyway?

8. And so constantly either being on a sugar high or a major come down.

And you still have so much work to do…

9. The pain of thinking you’ve written way more words than you actually have.

10. Or of writing a lot but then reading it through and deciding it’s all rubbish.

12. But when you do take one you spend the whole time feeling guilty.

I haven’t written anything for five whole minutes!

13. Wasting shocking amounts of time deciding on a font and line spacing.

14. Ending up re-writing large sections multiple times and still not being happy with them.

15. Finding more and more typos every time you read through it.

“How did I not spot this the first time around?”

16. Gathering together that many references you can’t actually remember which ones you’ve used and which you haven’t.

17. Having a mini heart attack every time you hit ‘save’.

What if it doesn’t save? What if I lose it all?

18. Reaching a point where you can no longer remember what it is you’re writing about or why.

19. Finally finishing it but feeling like you’ve looked at it that much it doesn’t mean anything to you anymore.

20. And submitting it, wondering if you’ve actually just ruined your chances of a good degree.
