@mildlybookish:  Does my undergraduate Honors thesis count?

I was making really good progress until the stats of my study didn’t work out. Now I have to use a completely different coding system. That’s holding things up.

Not anymore!!! I did a master’s thesis and dissertation. Honestly, I didn’t think they were that bad. My comprehensive exams were way worse.

@mildlybookish:  Awesome! A three day thesis boot camp sounds great! Yeah it’s been hard to bounce back. I was a little discouraged but it will all be okay.

That is a tough question! My thesis is on error patterns in misspellings of typically developing children. Essentially I’m trying to find common patterns that can help teachers and speech language pathologists determine which students need additional help with spelling and what interventions would be appropriate for them. I could go into it in more detail but that’s the gist. I hope it makes sense – my brain is a little fried today!

What is your thesis on? 🙂

oh me! thesis writing is the worst. It always takes soooo much longer than you think it will. It’s really frustrating. I haven’t picked it up in a week, but I really need to work on it. the internet is way more interesting.

I am! But I have all of my regular coursework too, so it’s hard to even feel like I’m really working on a thesis at all. In my PhD program you write a short thesis your first year whie you have the rest of your first-year courses going on. Ugh.

On the plus side, I already wrote a thesis for my master’s, so I know I can do it!!
