It’s much more difficult to make myself sit down and write my thesis than I thought it would be. Why? I want to get the damn thing done, after all. I want my degree. I don’t want it hanging over my head any longer.
I think the thing still scares me. The defense scares me. On top of that, having moved away, it already feels like I’ve finished, even though I haven’t really. The thing to do, I suppose, is just to say that I’m going to work on my thesis everyday at X time for at least Y amount of time no matter what. I’ll start out small, with half an hour and work my way up. I know I can’t possibly write my thesis in half an hour a day without it taking a ridiculously long time to write, but the idea is to just get myself in the habit of sitting down to work everyday and to use an increment of time that seems really, really manageable. Then, I can work myself up to larger increments of time. I do want to get this thing done, really, I’m just having difficulty finding the motivation to do it right now.
