The process of making your thesis

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

When you reach junior year in college, this is the time wherein you begin to plan for your future. You become more serious because your decisions will affect everything that will happen to you before and after your graduation. This is the time wherein you realize that there is only a few time left before you actually finish schooling. This is also the time wherein you are bombarded with a lot of requirements and schoolworks. There will be less time to hang out with your friends outside of school because everyone is busy. Junior year is the beginning of your thesis making. I’m pretty sure that when you reach this year, you completely have no idea on how to begin a thesis or what topic to use.  Here is something that will guide you in starting a thesis and going through the whole process:

1)      Choose your partner well

   The first thing that you do before you begin your thesis is to choose your partner. Be careful though, because this will determine whether you will graduate or not. So better pick the person whom you can work well with. It is normal that your first instinct is to choose your friend or one of your barkada as your partner, but a good advice to you guys, it is possible that this could actually ruin your friendship. There are cases wherein friendships are broken when making a thesis because of too much stress and pressure. So better make the right choice.

2)      Choose a good topic

Choose a topic that you are familiar with. It is a lot easier to work on a topic that you are interested in because this will motivate you more. Choose a topic that is not yet been studied by your schoolmates and do a lot of research before you settle for you topic.

3)      Get as many references you need

4)      Start Early

Thesis-Making Temptations – How Do Overcome These?

Friday, November 26th, 2010

Ever wondered why it takes so long to make a thesis? Even if you say that you have all the time to make that final requirement, there are still various hidden reasons why almost all graduating students experienced cramming up to the last minute. So before you even decide on whom to partner with when it comes to thesis-making, make sure you’ve read everything written in this article. It contains the truth about what’s really happening to those who spend their “whole time” doing their last requirement for college.

Overnight thesis turned to overnight chat – Seems familiar? Usually, you would tell your parents for an overnight thesis project. Hey, your intentions were good at first, but when one of your thesismates started talking about somebody (professor, ex-boyfriend/ex-girlfriend), you would go with the flow and before you knew it, it’s already 3 in the morning – still no progress on your thesis.

Thesis-Making Temptations Start

“Let’s meet at (restaurant) and talk about the thesis” – This is one of the meeting places that you should avoid. Here’s the fact, once you entered the restaurant, there is no way that you would be able to resist the urge to buy food. What happens next? Well, it’s like meeting up with your friend/s to have a chat over a value meal.

Thesis-Facebook-thesis-Facebook mode – Who doesn’t know this social networking site, almost nobody right? I would suggest that before you even do your thesis, research every information you need to get from the internet, save it on a flash drive, then go offline. Why, because as long as you know that you have the internet, you won’t stop from checking your wall every now and then.

Thesis-Making Temptations – Facebook

So here’s the best part where you get to know what to do when these situations arise. Actually, there’s only one word that you need to get over these temptations – discipline. No matter how much persuasion your friends will do to keep you from doing your thesis, if you have enough discipline, you will surely overcome whatever bait they throw upon you.
