My Master's scholarship and student allowance for 2005 run out. So while I can take longer to finish my thesis, I'll have to burn my stuff and eat my legs to survive Shocked

So, we're procrastinating you from finishing your thesis in time for your student allowance to run out...
...why? Not meaning against the thread, but why do you want us to?

Because if you want distractions...

*pink flamingoes with yoyos sail by*

ETA: What's your thesis on, anyway?

Well, not really. But I do need little breaks from time to time Smile

Micropauses!

Current title is: The Beginnings of Roman Imperialism in Cilicia: Control, Policy and Response in the second and first centuries BC.


Mmm, yoyos.

*jaw drops*
What is it with theses? Can't you have short titles?
Although the subject sounds almost fun to my ickle NCEA level Classics brain (who, nonetheless, has managed to beat her teacher on some subjects. Ha! Take that, Virgil!).

well my honours thesis was called :Environmental barrier coatings through Sol gel processes for wound higly porous oxides.

it was about coating things with stuff using gels

they just fancify everything when writing the title, its part of the mystique

They call that Life experiance. Wink

It's funny that the less time you have to do something, the more time you spend procrastinating. Okay....so maybe that's just funny to me. Very Happy

If they're more descriptive, they'll be more easy to find and get looked at more, apparently. So my supervisor tells me anyway.

It would really depend on how much you like history. Although there is a big section on Cicero as governor, which isn't so history-y.

Just between you and me... I'd prefer is there wasn't an "after".

Not to devalue life experience, but, ow!

It's not like you really need your legs these days, to be honest. Just get them replaced with cool prosthetic ones after you've finished your Masters, and are thus in a nice, highly paid lecturering position. I'm sure the same goes for other body bits.

Well, I won't be in a nice highly paid lecturing position until after my PhD, but your point is well taken.

Mmmm shiney chrome bits...
