First draft of PhD officially handed over.

I think I could damage someone if I swung this this hard enough at their head. That's the goal for a PhD thesis right?

Glasses case included for scale because I could not find a banana.

Passed in this bad boy today. It is complete, but not finished, this draft will have the general introduction and discussion by my prof, and a quick once over, but that’s it. The complete and finished draft is not due until one month from today, so there is a lot of time left for polishing and editting the last two manuscripts included in there, of the five. For 4 years of effort and 1.5 months of writing, it seems like it should be longer than 55 thousand words.

Feels pretty fricking awesome to have handed it over though!!!

About adventuresunplugged

The world is a really cool place. I moved to Zurich almost three years ago to start my PhD, and have really enjoyed the different opportunites living close to the Swiss alps offered. This blog is about some of my adventures, climbing, mountaineering, rock climbing, traveling... life in general! Wow, haven't updated this bad boy in some time! While the above is still true I have gone on to finish the PhD, so that is Dr Unplugged to you. I also have landed a job in Switzerland and will be shortly moving to Geneva. Clearly I have some adventures ahead left to explore with you guys along for company!

    That’s a huge accomplishment, congrats! 🙂

    • Eugh thanks!! I am the third student from my lab to finish since February, with another finishing the week after me, sometimes that makes it harder to step back and realize it really is a big deal.

      I started University in 2005, so I guess it was actually ten years not four to get here! I see you are studying too, good luck and stick to it!
