There it is. Tweeted about it right after opening the box. Fresh from the printing house: my thesis. Beloved, difficult, painful, joyful, wonderful thesis, that should represent how I have developed as a researcher, studied a new growing phenomenon, and written it all inside those thin blue covers. My thesis. Finished, done, ready. There is a lot of “should have done this differently”, “maybe more references would have been good” and “why didn’t I choose a proper cover image”, but there are always plenty of shoulda coulda wouldas when looking back a project this long.
A couple more weeks until the defence. Yaiks. My stomach goes upside down even thinking about it.
