Finishing School

Finished my third-to-last class in this Master's program. 94%, not bad at all. Especially since the final was due Sunday night, right after Penguicon ended. I even made time to get a pedicure with SGW, which shows how smoothly it all went!

Next, unfortunately, I have to write my thesis. Booooo. I do not want to write a thesis. Even one on an interesting topic. Also my thesis advisor is sort of waffling on whether she still has time to be my thesis advisor.

My plan is to spend the summer working on my thesis without taking classes. Then in September I will sign up for "Thesis II", and at the end of October I'm supposed to turn in a completed thesis. Seems a reasonable plan... six months.

The downside is that I don't know how an idea becomes a thesis. I'm sure it must follow some logical progression, but I'm fuzzy as to what it should be. I want my thesis advisor to help me sort of outline what should happen in these next six months, with deliverables every 2 weeks or so, so I can stay on track and know I'm on track.

Except that she's kinda waffling... see above. I suppose I should contact my advisors and get this figured out, instead of fretting about it on LJ. Except that this is easier....
