DUDE!!! I’m getting ready to enter into the 20th straight hour (not counting the four hour nap) of working on my first “real” graduate level paper.
And boy did I underestimate the time evolved in writing a paper of this level…
I was still thinking like an undergrad – you know, sit down and bust out a paper in 4 or 6 hours, max.
I’m not going to make this mistake again!! That’s for sure!!
Update at 5:30 pm on the same day: It is finished.
22.5 hours of work, 4 hours of sleep and 2,999 words later (3k max) – the paper is complete and has been been sent to Fuller with 30 minutes to spare.
Now all I have to do is figure out how to make up the work I missed today at my paid job.
