That’s when I defended and essentially wrapped up an M.Sc. in chemistry.
The whole process of writing up “everything” I did over two years was daunting and as soon as “it” started, it was a blur.
By the end, I looked around and wondered how I got there. As soon as one part finished, it was onto the next; it was easy to get caught up in the rush and lose track.
“How was it?”
That’s a common question I get regarding the whole process of writing and defending a thesis. Usually, I’ll answer with “good” or “not bad”, because it’s easy.
Maybe it was exactly the opposite and I answer with such simplicity to avoid thinking about it and avoid being articulate about the entire experience.
But for something that I had put so much time and effort into I’d like to be able to provide a better answer than just that.
