This post is going to be short and sweet. Which is probably a relief to most of you who are always subjected to my longer weekly posts and ramblings. I’ve been feeling the semi burnout of being in the midst of this mid semester haze. I feel even more disoriented with the realization that half of our cohort will be leaving us in December. Some which have become close and personal friends of mine. I hate to dwell on this fact for too long, because the sensitive, super emotional Pisces in me is literally on the verge of tears. Not to mention I hate change and all the uncertainty it brings. However, as I’m approaching the last year of yet another decade in my life, I realize that everything in life is transitory. Nothing lasts forever. Life and whatever it brings us is also fleeting, and temporary. I’m learning, slowly, to embrace this reality and realize that maybe the fact that most things don’t last forever isn’t such a bad thing aftercall. Okay, enough of the mushy stuff! Below I detail and highlight what I will specifically be working on for this week!
As far as my plans for my thesis work this week, I will devote my time to starting on my thesis proposal and also touching up and revising my literature review. I realized after Dr. Zamora’s last post to our thesis class website, that even us second semester thesis students must complete a proposal and in progress literature review by the semesters end in December. Yikes! I guess this kind of flew right past me, along with the other a million and one things I have to work on and process through. Again, I’m taking three classes and it’s been very intense. But I welcome the challenge. So my plans will be to start my proposal and make sure I have a solid outline of what I need to include in it, I want it to be clear and concise. As far as my literature review I think I found a good amount of articles and resources that really help reinforce my memoir work. I’m also proud to say I finished my thesis presentation slides and I look forward to presenting it to you all in the coming weeks. I’m really proud of what I created and I think it will all give you a personal, raw and unedited look into my at times troubling past, my uncertain present and my ultimate goals for my future. Well, that’s all folks! Just as I promised, short and sweet! Enjoy your weekend guys! See ya in class!
