A Few Words concerning the Half Way Point

Here I am at the half way point. Two years are done and two years are ahead. I have three papers to write. Then on to achieving approval for my dissertation thesis. Finally, researching and writing the dissertation. I learned last week up to a third of my dissertation can come from previous work done during my doctoral studies. For instance a 200 page dissertation can contain up to 67 pages from early work completed as part of this program. A small change instituted by CES…all dissertations submitted must be in electronic form only, no printed forms.

There is something I go through on every degree, the half way blues. It is when you are too far into the program to back out and too much work yet to do to start getting excited about the end. I call them the half way blues. I am officially in the half way blues. It goes away but really sucks while experiencing them. One good part, this is the last time Ii  will have to go through the half way blues.
