Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Movie Finale 1: Nearing the Finish Line

Another week, another set of good times! And another low-down, of course 😀 WATCHAN: Berserk 18: Excellent episode, at least by Berserk TV standards. None of the scene cuts seemed to be that poorly conceived, some nice characterization, and Guts looked pretty badass when he started cutting up those trolls. Not the best stuff I’ve […]

Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 36 (Season 2 Last Episode): What I Learned from my Second Draft

Whew! As promised, my friends, I have a very meaty entry for you today! I’ve done a big writeup on why my 2nd draft of my dissertation took so long, and what I learned from it. Before I get to that, though, here’s what I’ve been doing for fun this week: I’ve been eating out […]

Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 35 (Season 2 second-to-last-episode): At long last, victory!

Hoooooo boy. It took a while, longer than I hoped, but it’s finally happened. On Monday, February 13, 2017, I handed in the second draft of my dissertation. My feelings about it? Honestly, I’m kinda apathetic…as surprising as it may seem, I don’t feel as accomplished as I did when I turned in my first […]

Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 34 (Season 2): Victory approaches!

Another short entry for you, today, my friends, but a good one: I was waiting for a while for a response from my profs, but my advisor just got back to me! He said what I had sounded good, so I should send it over. I’m gonna go over my draft quickly and make sure […]

Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 33 (Season 2): Progress and Frustration

Well, as the day counts down to the last of my extension, I’ve got good news and bad news. First the good: I’m almost done with the changes I’ve made. The bad, though…well, as you’ve probably gathered, I made some pretty significant changes to organization, and while I think my work is looking much better, […]

Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 32 (Season 2): Thank God for extensions!

Still busy but some good news: I asked my profs and they said I could have a little extension, so the new date is Feb. 3. I needed it..for reasons I’ll get into next week, for now, I’m mad busy! Back to the grind…

Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 31 (Season 2): Grinding My Gears

Ugh. Ugh ugh ugh ugh ugh. Still haven’t finished up chapter 1. Partially, this is motivation: It’s gotten so much warmer that I’ve been spending more time outside eating and enjoying myself. But partially it’s because the act of reorganizing the chapter seems to be like a “one step forward, two steps back” sort of […]
