Righting a wrong

I woke today with new words from my thesis.  As you may know from my writing, I have an adversarial relationship with my thesis.  I received my lowest media studies grade for it and I never felt the heart connection to it, that it deserved and required.  I also let stress interfere way too much in the process.

The relationship with your supervisor in this process is pivotal and mine was flawed.  I could not voice what I needed and he could not meet me at a level I needed. This challenge was made harder with the death of the supervisor I wanted and their mutual dislike. 

I have to rewrite it.  Yep 40, 000 words.  I am leaving the flawed thesis in place and am working with what I have.  Although I will take on board what the markers felt was missing.  I am not sure I can find peace with this process until I do do so   

I am dreading and excited about this.  I will post updates but will keep the work private until complete.  This feels right for me to do.

Author:

I was 46 years old when I begun this blog, female and married with a house full of cats (7). My past is littered with the impact of events that happened when I was a teen. Two loves of my life have been nursing and studying. I just completed my Master of Arts: Media Studies endorsement. My blog will be about the things I think about, that might be better served being written rather than squirreled away in my mind festering. It is the meanderings of my mind as I seek to define myself and my world.
