12 months ago I graduated from my Master's program. This year's graduation for the School of Education, I was invited to attend not as a graduand but as part of the ceremony's academic procession. I must admit it was fun donning the academic robes again and sitting up on stage looking out across the sea of mortarboards with their tassel swinging side to side.
Standing with the academics in their doctoral gowns has increased my motivation to complete my thesis. Sometimes, motivation to write wanes and attending the graduation ceremony as part of the academic procession and recession has reminded me of my goal. It has made me determined to get to my graduation ceremony where I wear the big floppy hat or the velvet tam.
So, how's your thesis writing going?
