Keeping me on task有ou needs to write her thesis!

Hey hey! I'm at the end of my honours year, which means I need to uh actually sit down and write my thesis (because I cannot last minute this haha).

Each day until I submit a draft I aim to do a little bit each day耀tarting today. The point of this thread is to keep me accountable and to guilt me into doing it. 😂 (and for others to follow on if they want (is that a thing? Idk!))

Anyways today:
- I fixed my references up in my intro/literature review section (as I ported my text over from 'monthly reports' and had to merge my referencing)
- Started adding proper headings
- Highlighted parts I desperately need to write on
- Refined some of my methods

Hey Insanipi!

Nice thread, it sounds like you are already getting ahead with your thesis, can't wait to hear the updates! :)
Also, I've seen your degree listed in your signature, is your thesis on molecular biology?

Good luck!

Gl. Writing my thesis was one of the hardest things I feel I've done in my life - more than happy to do anything to help someone else get through it

Dear VCE 3/4 Chemistry students: you do not need to know how to do pH calculations for your exam. That is all.

Hey!

I've only done three monthly reports so far but putting it all together has made starting that little bit easier! :D

Molecular biology is the simple way of putting it傭ut the more accurate thing would be CRISPR/Cas and gene editing, given that's my focus (at least this one cool new thing with CRISPR/Cas9 anyways haha) ^_^

Ty. I'm dreading actually writing most of it up, and it's lead to some procrastination of all kinds on my end and a supervisor who keeps reminding me that I need to be working on it 🤭

That sounds so cool to do a thesis on, we learnt about CRISPR at school during Biology and it was very interesting ;D

I also want to say, being on the forefront of CRISPR research seems so awesome! I researched it for my biology AOS 3 Investigation Task and was fascinated by its applications in medicine and also the ethical dilemma regarding its use. I'm now writing my English POV oral presentation on it too!

Best of luck to your thesis and can't wait for the updates  ;D

It's definitely really interesting, and there's new research journal papers on it everyday! There's still so much we don't understand about it, but I'm still super thrilled that Emanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna* received the Nobel Prize for it!

*Speaking of Doudna, I'm attending a World CRISPR day seminar in the wee hours of the morning (2am) (US people time is much nicer) next week and I'm super keen!

Thanks for the support btw!

It is interesting!

Daily update: Fixed some of my cell culture transfection methods, and jotted down discussion points for my results.

Love this! Maybe seeing someone else give daily updates will guilt me into kicking my own ass into gear for writing my one.

The deadline is so close yet it seems so far? Hard to explain, but my procrastination feeds off this warped perception of the deadline.

I was getting guilted by the fact that I had to sit and wait for things to be ready to experiment again and I just sat here watching YouTube instead, and my supervisor often keeps asking me how I'm going D:

The deadline is so far but so close, it's actually scary! If COVID didn't shut me down March-May, I would've had mine due next Friday. It's actually wild haha!


Daily update: Refined my wording of hypothesis and aims, added a couple of headings in my literature review/introduction, and added in some literature review for formulations.

Really curious how long you both have! For reference, I think I started my writing about a month out? But I had already basically finished my introduction at the time, so I did have about 10/60-ish pages written

Whoa what. That's a lot of lit, mine was only meant to be 10. How big are they expecting the thesis to be??

I've got until 27th October. My intro/methods/results have just been sent off for their final revision, so all I'm doing is putting off the discussion (I have no excuse lmao). Psych just has a word min/max of 9~12k words for the whole thing and I'm sitting at about 7k.

My thesis due date is 20th November haha; I havea fair whack of intro but not enough (I have a text limit of 35 pages at 12pt Arial and 1.5 spacing haha)

So jealous of that due date!
