On here procrastinating when I should be studying and particularly preparing the 3 presentations I have in less than 2 weeks time.

Also pretending I'm not stressed about it but eating continuously :roll:

Ok, back to work now, honest :wink:

Procrastinating, eating continuously - check, check :( Doesn't help that it's bl**dy cold around here first thing in the morning, which is the best time to get into it.
Good luck, hope you find your motivation. Send mine back if you find it.

It's probably hiding out with mine - maybe they're partying somewhere ?! :wink:

I have no time to procrastinate, my supervisor is expecting my proposal in 24hrs time. It is written, just looking up references I've missed and fine tuning some of those awkward paragraphs ....wish me luck. Good news is I am kid free for then next 46hrs :)

I guess I should join in here... seeing as I'm procrastinating over an assignment. I can finish it tomorrow while everyone is out of the house can't I?

What degree/dipolma (etc) are you studying?
Masters of Counselling...

Do you attend classes or do it correspondance?
All online... with some residential school for some subjects - which means I get to head up to Brisvegas as thats the only place that doe the res school for Masters students

Where you studying before your LO/s arrived?
technically yes... but different degree, and really the paid work has more impact than the kids

How long do you have till you complete your studies?
um years

Where do you hope it will get you in the future?
self employed

What is the best thing about studying?
at the moment I have no idea. I'm giving up time with my horse for this, and mostly procrastinating...

What is the worst thing about studying?
I don't want to do it... I just want to be taught hands on now. I've forgotten how hard it is to study, but I've also taken up a form of horse training that uses human psychological techniques and that has been fascinating to me- so I want to learn more about it, but I found I learnt more from watching the videos than reading the long a dreary articles.

oh yeah

I saw this thread bumped, and realised I never responded to westaussie77's question (only two years later... :oops: ) - my PhD is in the medical anthropology/health sociology area, and I've been focused on women's experiences and body practices at the intersection of breastfeeding, milk insufficiency, and milk sharing.

Good time for an update, too - the final draft of my thesis is currently with my supervisors for the copy edit/last minute comments stuff. Should have it submitted in the next fortnight. :smt026

And it's done - 4 years + 2 days, a baby, a toddler-now-six-year-old, and an interstate move later, and the PhD thesis has been submitted. The friends and connections I've made through ABA have been there in the background the whole time, too. :-)

Congratulations!!!!!!! This is HUGE! Real admiration for you. It's one of the hardest things to do, and to have completed it with so much other stuff going on... just WOW! I hope you are celebrating this achievement and milestone.

arrrrrrgh...
need hugs. Had a bad day at work ( feeling taken for granted by someone that I've been helping) and then found out that I only just passed my first assignment... and it was due to the formatting.
