Since my plan after graduating (May 2016 is pretty soon, yet so far, far away...) is going to grad school for History, I'm currently writing a 60-page thesis. Although it sounded like a great idea and it is very rewarding, it totally dominates your life. Here are ten ways in which it does, through my favorite app, Snapchat.
Friends, housework, other school work... It will all make you feel bad, sorry.
Working so much you get a "muscular jaw problem" (what does that even mean?!). Oh, okay. That's normal, right?
"You'll have to read at least all of this". Oh great. No more friends, TV or video games. Or life, really.
"Whaaat, these rainbow colored things are only 10 bucks?! TOTALLY worth it, let's get a hundred!"
"What are you doing lately?" Thesis. "How are you doing?" Y'know, writing my thesis. "What did you do last weekend?" Same answer. "Halloween?" Also same answer.
It's impossible. It could say anything, like "History is and then yes". Regardless, every time you read it you'll read that cleverly phrased sentence you thought of the last time you edited it. No, glasses do not help.
"What do you mean you didn't know that Druze women were photographed wearing tanturs by French photographers in the latter half of the 19th century..?" So hard to have a conversation with people these days.
But what else am I supposed to talk about?! And no, I can't come to your party.
"Can you tell us about the sample essay you submitted?" No, it's terrible and I hate it and I never wanna think about it ever again.
And then do more research. Because it's kinda fun. And interesting. And rewarding.
