Just sent my thesis off for printing
After many months, many years, many arguments and many edits, I have finally sent my PhD thesis to the printers for a final version that I can submit for examination.
Would it be wrong to kiss the person in registry when I hand it in?
Bring on bikes and beer related nonsense for the next two weeks.Posted 5 years ago
Cycled in, drank coffee while it was being printed, picked up coppies, checked, rechecked, walked over to Registry dresed as a spandex man…they were shut for staff training and I’ve an 8am ferry to Wales tomorrow…hmmm
Walk to school secretary…she’s handing in tomorrow for me 🙂
wonder if it’s the one I’ve just been asked to examine…..?
If your name is Brian and you’re in Dublin…quite possibly 🙂Posted 5 years agoxcentricMember
congrats GregMay – look forward to reading it….
actually, it’s not going to be me – I’m not Brian and not in Dublin 🙂
But one piece of advice – it’s a thesis *defence*, so there’ll be bit that you need to fight back on, and bits that will test you to beyond breaking – and both those scenarios are ok. Good luck.Posted 5 years ago
Thanks all, haven’t kept a copy, will when I print off the final version assusming the Viva goes ok.
definitely looking forward to the defence aspect. Strange as it may appear, I love that aspect of what I do. Talking at conferences, debating, getting my point across, all part of the ego game that is being a scientist I suppose.
Will just have to see how it goes! But now…festive period and beer!Posted 5 years agojohnny63Member

Jeez Greg, hope you had the spell checker up and running – above now fixed too, so you are now good to go 🙂
No Nationals next year then? Been missing those smiley legs this season
Good luck with the thesis and compliments of the season to you and yours!

johnny63 – Alright fella! Yeah, CX season was a write off, no point in trying to race, no training does not make a fast Greg. May make nationals, won’t be racing as no way I can justify my kit at the moment 🙂
Flyingmm – Not going to lie…it will take longer than you expect unless you do nothing else but it. Why wait, get working on your structure today.Posted 5 years agomarko75Subscriber
Congrats… now have some time off before looking at it all again for the viva! There are normally a few corrections so you might as well get a copy once its been formally accepted!
Handing in is a let down and so is the viva – you hype it up internally and then when its over you think ‘ Is this it?’. Dont worry about the viva its just a chat to join the club – remember the most important answer is “I am sorry Prof but I dont know!’ I used it more than once – dont try and bulls*** your way through or it will last 6 hours rather than the normal 2-3 hours!
Enjoy beer and riding 🙂Posted 5 years ago
