100th Post & a new me!

animated_gif_clipart_birthday_070Woooo! So this is my 100th Blog post. I know I have been absent, yet again, however, I have had good enough reasons!

I have now finished university! The problem was, I made some friends who are freaking awesome! But they were from America and Korea. They were only in London until the 26th of April and 3rd of May. =[ So I hung out with them a lot until they left. Unfortunately, my dissertation was due on the 7th of May.
I did finish my work on time but this meant that I have had no personal time. With mum still being in hospital and working on my dissertation I had no time to update my blog even when my friends had left. I even spent my birthday writing my dissertation!!
After I handed in my dissertation I decided after 4 years of university life, I need some me time to catch up on dramas, play games and just be lazy!

However, now that I have free time, although mum is still in hospital and I am doing a short course, I will be posting on here regularly again. I also don’t have a job any longer so I have weekends free. I will be dedicating two days a week to blogging! I will try to be interesting!

Again, if there are any topics you would like me to blog about, please let me know. Stay tuned!

Stress

Just 3 weeks left until my dissertation is due and I am feeling the pressure.

If I only had my dissertation to write I think I would be fine, but having two other modules to do and 4 more deadlines is really stressful.

I always conplained about the fact that my course wasn’t practical enough, but all the practical modules came at the worst time.

Although I am stressed I am happy with this final semester. I feel like I’ve learnt more in the past 3 months than I have in my 3 years at uni.

I just can’t wait for all of this to be over!!

Wish me luck!

Writers Block.

Just 5 weeks left until my dissertation is due and I have been suffering from writers block for more than a week. Before then it was just sheer laziness but now I want to write but my mind goes blank.

writers-block

My dissertation topic is so under-researched so I have to do three-four different fields of research. Popular culture, Fandom, Identity & Adoption. Identity among adopted people is such a sensitive subject that many people are scared to research into it.

Stupidly, in my mind I thought it was a good idea to have a unique dissertation title so it would be different. I failed to realise that in doing so it will make my dissertation so much harder to do!

Along with the pain of research, I have to do five interviews that should last between 30 minutes and an hour and a half. Also the people who I have to interview are hard to find in London.

(If there are any adopted Koreans living in London, please contact me! You will be saving my life! Even if you don’t live in London, Skype can connect us so get in touch please!)

But I know all this hard work will pay off. Once the cloud above my head has passed and I manage to start writing, I am confident that I will do well. If this dissertation goes the way I have planned, it will be a success. Not only for the grade I will get and how it will impact my degree, but as an under-researched topic. Having something I can call my own and have published is my dream.
