7 Signs YourThesis Isn't the Right One for You
You don't know what to read and what not to read.
If your research had a style, it would be eclectic with a fair bit of, "Yeah, sure This might be helpful."
You don't know which class notes to focus on.
You've done the course readings, but you're not sure which ones to dig into a little more and which ones you should leave for the birds (another spin on my dad's catch-all phrase)
You couldn't give a definition of one
but, you've definitely heard of it.
You've been told different things by different teachers.
Your high school teacher said it lists your supporting arguments, your prof says it doesn't. Who's right?
Your teachers keep telling you to pull your ideas together and you have no clue what that means so you keep writing longer and longer conclusions.
You don't know when to write it or where to put it - fingers crossed it lands somewhere and your prof finds it
You write it once and don't touch it or look at it again, kind of like that thing you bought a while back with good intentions but now it's shoved in drawer somewhere For me, that thing is a day planner.
