    my laptop died a few days ago... hence hardly being on a computer. hopefully I will be able to save the laptop because i can't edit my dissertation on my desktop (due to dissertation being fancy in word 2007 and computer being all old) Only big plus side is my dissertation was never on my laptop and was always on USB.

    Biggest piece of advice from laptop death, save you dissertation elsewhere!

    Just Harvard referenced 38 citations in one go - took 45 mins! I knew I should have done it as I went.

    Finished all three chapters and the introduction now. Already 500 words over and I still need to have enough for my conclusion - eek!

    Next up: editing, redrafting and cutting

    Panic is really started to set in now. It's a month until my deadline, I still have 10,000 words to write and some interviews to finish. Really freaking out. I can't sleep at night but then spend all day playing spider solitaire. Eek!

    3 days ago I was having a nervous breakdown about this 2nd dissertation I'm writing.

    Today, I turned it from a pile of crap into a master piece. Even though I was struggling, I kept at it and now it flows beautifully Done 3 days worth of work in 1 day and I can clearly see how I'm going to analyse it etc. Absolutely nailing it now. 3500 words left of my final essay at undergrad woo!

    Never give up people! Keep at it!

    Oh noes, less than a month to go I still have four interviews to do and school holidays really hurt my dissertation progress - work gives me so many more hours and due to the fact that I am doing my dissertation based on an education topic it means I don't have access to school's over easter

    After all the worry about potentially having a rubbish and bare bibiliography, mine now stands at 43 items and I have plenty of references throughout I'm feeling better about that now!

    One chapter and a tiny bit to go on the editing front, so hopefully finish all that by Friday and then just the conclusion to write! I'm still about 100-200 words over my limit at the moment though and still have the conclusion to add..issues...I have already cut out 1000s!!! Gah!

    My tutor just granted me an extension for my report because my exam timetable is horrific. Which means I have an extra 7-8 days to revise for exams and I have until the last day of term to hand in my report :woo:
