Hmm i dunno...

I have problems coming up with a research topic for my Masters Dissertation.....

Well actually... I've come up with a couple of ideas... Spoke to my lecturer about them today and he thinks i have a great idea but it's hard to get it done because of the time contrain and it's an individual project. He thinks that it will work only if there's 100 Fat Fingers cos the data collection part is going to be a real challenge...which i agree...

So he gave me an idea... it seems ok.. somewhat interesting but I am not sure. I even asked him if it will make a good dissertation and he said.."Of course!" ... hmmm i'm not too sure though.. it's not challenging enough for me but i have no more ideas and I had to submit my proposal today... So I told him i'm going to write that down as my proposal first and will do more research...

Now.. i'm having this feeling.. u know.. like.. I've won the consolation prize and not the top prize... hmmmm

Should I do something that it's not so interesting and challenging? or should I do something else? But i have no more ideas..boohoohoo!!!
I have till May to come up with better ideas... cos that's when the first formal deadline is.. and i hope the co that i'm going to do the internship with will ask me to work on something with them. That would be great!

So in the meantime.... i better get on with my other essays!!! and then think more about it.

Argh!

And why do people like to come up with cheem titles for their dissertation? Is it to confuse people? Make it more academic-ish? hmmmm I also want to come up with cheem titles hehehe

Its times like these that I'm glad I'm not doing any courses at this point. Then again, I might have a moment of insanity and go back to studying! Oh well...:-) You'll get there luvvy - you will. Hang in there awrite.

Somehow I can never think of cheem words for cheem titles. And when I put my reports together with the rest, my reports look so damn unglam. :(

mirebella: thanks! now i'm trying to come up with the pros and cons of that dissertation.. hmmm ahahaha

ollie: yah how these ppl come up with these titles man. i think maybe u need a good report template.. then it is easier to write. i now use some of these templates for my reports etc. makes it easier. no need to think so much hahaha
