I am very pleased to say that my PhD thesis was officially submitted for examination today. I am happy that I managed to submit it in August rather than September so that I can take a little break before my viva preparation begins.
The final few days have been a challenge, with difficulties in printing and binding each copy. However, in the end I was rescued by a local business man who helped to get my thesis bound when I needed to.
I am utterly thankful to all of the people who have helped me along the way. My supervisors have been awesome, my colleagues and fellow PhD students have been a great support, and my family have been the best! I have lots of other people to thank and have formally done so in the thesis acknowledgements – I would not have been able to do this without you all.
Obviously I had to take lots of photos to document the process! 🙂
